My new Silver tea Server!

I have always wanted a real  silver tea server, but I found them to be to pricey. Well,I finally found what I was looking for at my local Salvation Army. It was selling for $40.00.
I know I could have got it for less, if I waited until yellow tag Wednesday, but I did not want to take the chance.
It sits on it's own warmer and you just tip the pot to pour the tea or hot water.
I just love it. I got another siler and cooper tea server for $10.00.

What a great day for tea finds!
 After I gave them a good polishing and puffing!
NOT BAD FOR $50.00
