My aunt passed away over a year ago and she didn't have much, but she left what she had to me.

There are a few silver pieces but my favorites are the wine glases that screw out of the sterling base (elgin silversmith mark). I was trying to clean the silver and i pushed a little hard on the glass and it twisted. I thought there was a way to "glue" it to the base. So I twisted the glass out and found the glass has groves. I never saw anything like this.

I also have a warming dish (?), but i have to look up the markings on it (looks like a hand).

I didn't realize that the marks meant something. This is a great learning experience.
