A little patina…….

 

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend?!?!?!

trophy 2

I picked up this old trophy

cup up a while back at my favorite antique shop.

The patina on it is

amazing since  the silver

plate is worn off almost completely.

That is some piece, Des! When the patina is like that, you know you have to leave it. No shining that beauty up!

Seeing your patina-ed cup convinced me that I should leave my very tarnished cup just the way it is! I think it's so badly worn that it wouldn't clean up anyway! LOL
