Announcement    Beautiful vintage silverware made personal - with a little bit of prose and a little bit of polish.
Each piece created by Prose & Polish is true vintage silverplate - carefully curated through estate sales, antique shops, and auctions. They are not new pieces, but rather old ones -- exhibiting the beauty of a life well lived. Once home, they are carefully cleaned and polished by hand. The sentiment is hand stamped letter by letter into the silver with a hammer and anvil. Each piece is then polished again, tagged, ribboned, and repurposed for you.
Any piece in the shop can be customized. If there is something that you would like to change about a design in the shop - or if you have a design in mind that you would like to share with me, please feel free to send me a message. I would be very happy to work with you to create your own silver heirlooms.

About ProseAndPolish

Prose & Polish -- beautiful vintage silverware, hand stamped.

I was born old .. not in a Benjamin Button sort of a way, but in a hot tea, old house, wooly sweater sort of a way. I've always appreciated the craftsmanship and beauty in all things old and loved. The way old floors creak when you walk on them and old books smell when you open them.
Antique silver is of course a favorite. The thought that these pieces have been here since long before I have. I wonder at the hands that have held them and the celebrations they have been witness to. I spend weekends trolling estate sales and antique auctions -- not looking for perfect, just looking for beautiful. I love them even more when I can find them a bit neglected and take them home to polish them back to beautiful. It's almost like opening an incredible gift under a simple craft paper wrapping.
I have been stamping jewelry for years and only recently thought to stamp silverware. It is so much more personal and I love that my pieces become quirky valentines, sweet momentos of bigger moments, and family heirlooms.
It has truly brought my loves of antiquing and crafting to one very happy place for me.... thank you for letting me share it with you !

Each silver piece in my shop is genuine vintage silverplate, most dating from the 1940's to the 1960's. I can't take credit for what is already beautiful. Craftsmanship and time worked magic with these pieces before they came into my hands. The fine lines and soft beauty of old silver was already present. I take each found piece and hand stamp the wording letter by letter into the silver with hammer and anvil, and then polish them -- preparing them for their next 50 years in your home, with your family.
