Sterling Silver at Table

Sterling Silver at Table

Elizabeth initially sought out sterling silver trays for a reception. Since then, her cache has grown to comprise a variety of accoutrements, such as the circa 1780 coffee pot and creamer pictured above. “Sterling silver is classic and elegant,” she says. “I appreciate it for its beauty but also because every piece has a story behind it.”
