Shine on

In my last post I indicated that I had cut up some small silver plated trays that Ken had given me - the going price was a silver bowl. Well as you can see from the photos below I have managed to create a couple of small bowls; a leaf and some Bazola bling as a test run on the cut up metal.

I am still a bit mystified about the EPNS plated metal - it is both heavy in gauge but is very hard even when annealed. I will have to investigate and find out if it a form of brass that has a lot more tin in it - does anyone know?

  1. Just so you know Ken liked both the bowls here and now has them in exchange for the silver ware he gave me - good exchange both ways. B
