I am getting back to Blog normal!

My friend Candy and I went Estate saleing today.  But it wasn't very good pickins!  After we went to lunch at Macaroni Grill and she brought in my birthday present.  She was very excited as was I when I saw this gorgeous item.  But we didn't know what it was.  So as soon as I got home, I googled and found out that this is a Victorian Biscuit Server.  It is absolutely gorgeous.  I couldn't find any markings.  I saw one a little more ornate that was Gorham and it was valued at $625.00.  Who knew?  Well, probably some of you!!





Isn't it spectacular??
