Herewith treasures? from the loft which have to go.
They have little value (so far as I can see) except to Marcia and I.
If anybody would like them or has any idea what to do with them please register your interest.
If there is no interest then they may end up on Ebay.
Six silver (in colour) baby spoons believed to be Indian or maybe Egyptian.
They were brought back from Egypt by Marcia's great Aunt Lill (Sophia Lillian Bandy) around c1930.
She was a children's Nanny who travelled about a bit - we've got her passport.
The box is not the original box but of the same vintage.
A silver plated collection comprising a coffee pot, a sugar bowl, toast rack, butter dish base and lid but no glass dish - sorry, six napkin rings and a lovely little cup - but tarnished.
Belonged to Mother-in-law.

Sugar tongs are with Emma together with a collection of vintage cutlery.
A collection of Arabian/Turkish coffee cups and pot. Six brass and four porcelain (one cracked).
