There is an amazing restaurant in Seattle, called Rocco’s, that uses really beautiful vintage flatware. I have always admired the classic design and the subtle tarnish that comes with age, and I really wanted to replace the boring flatware I had with something more unique, so I set out to find some antique silverware like the ones at Rocco’s. I went to a few antique stores in Seattle, but I wasn’t finding anything that I liked until I went online and browsed Etsy. I found a really amazing shop, PatziPlace, that had a beautiful 50 piece set of Plantation by 1881 / Oneida Silverplate flatware from the 1940s. I fell in love with the set and purchased it right away.
I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
