Vintage Silverplate Items inscribed with whimsical words, sayings, or quotations
TUNKABLES ® are vintage silverplate tabletop items that I find in antique shops and at auction, restore to their original luster, and hand-inscribe with whimsical words and phrases appropriate to their use. It is thrilling for me to recycle vintage pieces for renewed use and enjoyment. They have all the grace, charm, and utility of bygone eras, yet are updated by the inscriptions.
Typically, I engrave on the blades of the spreaders, the tines of the forks, and the bowls of the spoons rather than on the handles, because this gives them a unique look. Butter spreaders, for example, say 'SPREAD LOVE' or 'SPREAD JOY'. Serving pieces might say 'EAT YOUR VEGETABLES' or 'ENJOY LIFE'S SIMPLE PLEASURES'. Also available are miscellaneous small dishes, bowls, and trays which can be engraved with quotes by famous writers and thinkers or your own words or sayings commemorating a personal milestone, family event, wedding, birth, etc. The sayings that accompany each of the following images are merely my suggestions. Please note that the patterns of the silverplate pieces pictured on the following pages may be different from the actual item shipped.
I now have added sterling silver jewelry to my Tunkables repertoire. These pieces are also inscribed with words to inspire you, delight you, make you think, or simply catch your fancy. All jewelry items are chunky and have a nice substantial look and feel. Again, you may have your own choice of words, as long as they fit.
Tunkables are individually packaged in clear bags with colorful gingham ribbons and are ready for gift-giving (to friends or self).
