    Default The Family Silver (used only at Christmas)

    Guys,

    I think this is the right place for these.

    These were an ebay find around 2005.

    They cost I think 60 for 24 pieces.

    I bid with the expectation that they would be junk but at least good for parties etc.

    The seller had the usual spliel Dad was in the RAF etc and I thought no more of it as I would not see them until after tour.

    I was surprised then when I got home and there they were 24 pieces all 800 solid German silver from the local airfield just 15 mins up the road.

    They are stamped O.H. Fassberg, OH is Offiziers Heim Fassberg (which still stands) and the airfield was used during the Berlin air bridge and continues as a Helecopter training area even today.

    Just shows you ebay can be good sometimes.

    Regards

    Jock

    Rick,

    Its always a traditional turkey dinner, I use the big Luftwaffe serving plate as well as it fits the job. Turkey is always the size of a labrador.

    Ewan, It will remain with the family as its the only posh stuff we own, it is the family silver.

    Lovely presentation of the silvermaker's art. I , myself have no such silverware, but I do have a fondness for turkey- wild, if possible, but if not, then I have a big one smoked. Texas, USA.
