Happy New Year, it’s difficult to believe that 2012 is upon us. After taking a few days off hopefully everyone is back and ready to face the vintage silver platter monogram challenge.
Today we have a fine triple in a flowing traditional script. It’s not too difficult and given the stellar performances of you over the last several months I expect my trusty hat to have to break the tie this week.
Vintage Silver Platter Monogram Challenge
The monogram is on a lovely vintage silver platter made by Watson Company between 1905-1929. Watson helpfully changed their trademark a number of times, allowing me to date this piece so specifically. For full details click here -> Vintage Silver Platter.

Prior Vintage Silver Monogram Challenge
To refresh your memory about the previous monogram challenge, it was a teeny, tiny single on a baby feeding set is from Lunt Silver in the William and Mary pattern. William and Mary was introduced in 1921. Click here for full details about the Vintage Silver Baby Set, William and Mary.

And according to my straw hat the winner is….Elisabeth Ball. Congratulations Elisabeth, contact me and I’ll send you your six pence!
Many, many thanks to those of you who responded to my very short survey. Your feedback has been invaluable.
The survey is anonymous, so I can’t tell who has left comments, but some of you have left questions which I will be answering soon. I’m not too sure I’ll be able to work in that Scandinavian request though 😉
If you haven’t answered the survey and could spare a very few moments I would be most grateful. Click here to take survey.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
