1949 Wedding Gift
My parents were married in July 1949. My dad was an ensign in the merchant marines and they were stationed in Rhode Island. The officers invited my parents to a celebration dinner on board ship where they surprised them with a silver sugar and creamer. My mom gave it to us a few years ago as an anniversary gift. I'm not a fan of polishing silver, but I polish these regularly and use them. Painting metallic finishes can be difficult. The focus has to be on the reflections. I gave it a try this past week. (My mom said she had her first and last martini at this dinner!)
