My grandmothers both recently passed and each left me a set of silver.
The first is a set of 34; it’s stamped .925 and “princess Ingrid”.
The second is silver plate and its a larger set-- and I’m told the pattern is “Lady Hamilton.”
I’m so proud to have these but I confess I know nothing about silver. Should i use these or save them for one day when I have a daughter? I hear selecting a set of silver was a big deal to the Southern belles of yesteryear which my grandmas definitely were. Can anyone tell me what I have here? I’m afraid to use either set if they’re worth anything. I am trying to post pics but the forum won’t let me from my iPhone; says they are too big. Working on a way to downsize.
Thank you so much for your help!
