Continuing with a few more treasures I purchased from the endless estate sale, the plate below is a souvenir plate from Boston. The plate is from an English Staffordshire pottery and shows the Boston Library. It was right in my budget for transferware souvenir plates of $3.00.

I've been attracted for several months now with Victorian era quadruple-plate silver serving pieces. These two are my first purchases, however, both for $10 a piece. The spooner on the left holds some of my collection of Victorian sugar spoons and the cream pitcher on the right has an attached lid. I'm smitten with both pieces!!

In front of the spooner and creamer are three sugar spoons that I bought at the estate sale for $3 a piece.

More treasures to come on future posts.

Marty-- does a shelf in my china cupboard count as a tabletop? Hope so as I'm linking to your Table Top Tuesday event. Be sure to check out
