Welcome to another edition of We Call It Olde, the place for writers to share their articles on antiques, vintage collectibles, and history, and for readers to enjoy all the olde awesomeness. We had some wonderful things shared last week: olde advertising, a bed made from porch posts, furniture and glassware, olde homes in Greece, and a French castle! Did you miss those? You might want to go back and see!
The Family Silver
My olde share for this week is a bit of silver that belonged to my grandfather’s mother. I didn’t even know we had this until my mom recently came across it and asked if I’d like to have it. I was rather surprised because my family wasn’t wealthy, they were immigrants and farmers. It made me feel very small somehow, holding it and thinking of how we are each just a blip on the radar in a long line of ancestors and descendants.
