Tiny silver plated creamer pitchers

Old silver plated and sterling serving pieces seem to attract me like a magnet.  

These tiny silver plated pitchers were discovered on a table next to a bunch of old tools at the flea market.  The seller said they were from on an old hotel that was being torn down and these were literally found behind the fireplace.  The bottoms are stamped 1 and 1/2 ounces, silver solder, and were made in Philadelphia, PA.  They are a bit banged up but, still adorable.  Thought these would make fun Christmas ornaments dressed up with some ribbon and rhinestones when not being used as creamers.  Any other suggestions?

The little pitchers ended up being a great compliment to the larger covered pitcher or coffee pot found just minutes before for $4.00.  The bottom is etched Waldorf Astoria, which is a noted luxury hotel in New York that opened in the 1930’s.

The easy silver cleaning recipe will really be put to the test on these.  We’ll let you know how it works out.
