Heirloom Butter Knives

Beautiful entertaining pieces should be used for a variety of occasions from spring parties, birthday celebrations & bridal showers to fall gatherings & even game day socials, particularly when hosting guests in your home. Heirloom butter knives most certainly should be used for more traditional seated dinners to accompany bread & butter, however they offer distinctive charm with a lovely collection of crudités, dips & crackers. The handles are generally etched with intricate details so they elevate spaces without flaw. This particular piece known as a Modern Hollow Knife in the pattern titled Old Master was made by Towle Silversmiths with production beginning in 1942. It’s known as the flagship collection for the company & was designed by Harold E. Nock featuring a timeless Victorian style of graceful, scalloped curves at the handle that mimic a violin. It highlights pure elegance by showcasing a rosette with leaves & scrolls that outline the body of the piece. Learn how to properly polish coveted pieces & don’t be afraid to display them when casual or elevated gatherings beckon.

Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil with the shiny portion facing upwards. Place the silverware in a single layer in the pan being certain all of them make direct contact with the foil. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Sprinkle 4 teaspoons baking soda over the utensils, then pour the water over them. Let stand a few minutes in order for the chemical reaction to remove the tarnish. Once shiny, remove them from the solution with a pair of kitchen tongs & rinse them under water. Dry the pieces & use a little commercial cleaner such as Wright’s Silver Polish & a soft cloth to buff them further for a beautiful shine. Wash the silverware well with soapy water before using. The silverware should only need a quick additional polish or two with commercial cleaner during the upcoming months. Tuck away the silver when not in use by placing in zip-top bags to keep it looking its’ best longer.
