Today’s Monogram Challenge is a single on a lovely vintage silver Lancaster spoon by Gorham.
The House of Lancaster was, of course, one of the two sides in the dynastic struggle for the English throne during the War of the Roses (English history, not the Michael Douglas/Kathleen Turner movie).

Last Week’s Vintage Silver Monogram Challenge
Last week’s monogram challenge was on the Lady Diana Flatware Set.
The monogram is RVB. Unsurprisingly, everyone got it correct…joking about eye doctors aside.
I was amused that on a set named Lady Diana – in obvious homage to the goddess of hunting – that the V in this monogram looks like a pair of deer antlers!
Random.org is helping me determine the winner today…and that winner is…Jersey Lady!
Congratulations Jersey Lady. Contact me and I will send your prize.
