Even though it needs polishing and attention, we do love our silver. We always pour coffee from the silver coffeepot whenever we have company. The smaller after dinner pot is used whenever we use the small demi tasse cups for after dinner coffee.
It is a chore to polish silver but I have always enjoyed household chores which includes polishing the silver and the copper.
My favorite silver polish is by Seeds, a British firm that I used to buy at Restoration Hardware. They still sell it but it is under their own label. In my opinion it is the best!
From the silver tea and coffee services to the silver trays which I adore, there is a lot of silver at Linderhof. A cold fall afternoon, with carols playing, is a good time to make sure that the silver is bright and shiny for holiday entertaining.
