Will be custom made from silver pattern with such a sweet name - Buttercup. Buttercup was a silver pattern of the Gorham Manufacturing Company and was a very popular design. This is SOLID silver - this is not silverplated.
This particular piece of silverware comes from the estate of Polly Bigger. Polly was born in Louisiana. After WWII she and her husband moved to Mt. Vernon, Iowa where her husband earned his degree from Cornell College. Later they owned Bigger Flower Shop & Greenhouse. Polly loved her family, she loved to cook (southern style) and she loved to share family stories. You are now owning something that Polly loved and cherished.
