A while back, I pinned gold toned DVF flatware onto one of my Pinterest boards.
Just a smidge out of my price range. Well, more than a smidge.
West Elm is currently carrying a set too at a fraction of that cost.
Imagine my glee upon finding these puppies at the flea market last Sunday -- at a fraction of the fraction! (I daresay, it might even have been a fraction of the fraction of the fraction.)
They are Swedish and most likely from the 1920's. I mean, how could a flea market find ever be more perfect for me?
Sure, some of you may think they're tacky. I obviously don't. I think they're warm, different, a tad decadent, and perfect for brunch on the patio with bloody marys and mojitos. I do apologize for the photo. I just laid 'em all out, flea market grime and all. I don't have time right this sec to turn them out properly. They're quite lovely in real life, trust.
Take a look at how pretty a table with gold flatware CAN be:

I mean COME ON. Don't you want to pull a chair up to that table?
