Heirloom Jam Spoons

Silver jam spoons are small, beautiful pieces that may be used for a variety of entertaining tasks. One of the signature characteristics of this particular piece is the point located at the tip of the bowl making it easy to collect the jam from the bottom & sides of a jar that’s just about empty. The etched shell design on the handle offers a timeless decorative element & the spoon was known to have been distributed sometime from approximately 1953 to 1970 by Eisenberg-Lozano. Use these little spoons for serving condiments & toppings when entertaining. Learn how to polish them & truly make them shine with my simple technique.

How To Polish Silver

A bit of cleaning will need to be addressed in order to have heirloom silver looking its’ best. To remove the tarnish quickly & effectively, particularly from small spoons, place settings & cake servers with intricate details, my two step method will tidy them so that only minor polishing will be needed during the remaining season. Once the task is complete, use them for casual or holiday entertaining.

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 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.
