You Don’t Need Silver Spoons to Eat Good Food; Georgian Flatware on eBay.

A long day last week photographing silver spoons - proving that if God had wanted us to photograph silver he wouldn't have made it shiny - from a bag I found in a cupboard. Silver spoons of this age (early 19th century) have seen some action, and quite intimate action. It occurred to me when giving them a cursory polish there are not many antique items that have so repeatedly been handled and indeed, licked.
