Created in small batches, ready to ship as pictured. Hand wash only. Approximately 5.5" in length (+/- 0.25").
A small piece with a big history, this is a carefully curated & hand stamped piece of antique silverware. Silver pattern name & year is included with packaging (if applicable).
These are antique pieces so signs of a previous life may be visible. They have been cleaned and polished, but have led a long, useful life and bear the signs of use proudly. Each will be different which adds to the uniqueness of your item. Pattern, size, and patina may vary.
Metal stamping is a process where steel shanks with a letter or design on one end (stamps) are hammered into the surface to displace the metal and create an impression.
Please note that I stamp each item by hand with a hammer, so there may be some slight variations. Sometimes not all characters will be perfectly aligned as this is the nature of hand stamping - no two will ever be the same!
Yes, you can use this silverware! Impressions are naturally darkened so they are food safe. Treat with care, and gently hand wash. Silver will tarnish over time, see the full Care Instructions.
Items that are not meant to come into contact with food (bookmarks, keychains, ornaments, etc.) are darkened with enamel.
Each item is carefully handmade to order (unless noted as ready to ship). Your package ships from Rycroft, AB in 5-7 business days. Normal shipping times as per Canada Post guidelines. All orders are shipped via standard service with a tracking number.
