It’s Theme Week over on Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness 2. The Theme was “something with the letter K”. I chose a couple of things to photograph and liked this image the best to submit for the challenge.

A little history about these knives. I inherited this Oneida Community Silver-plate from my maternal Grandmother. It went to my Mom first then she gave it to me close to 20 yrs. ago. The pattern is called “Noblese”. The knives themselves are called New French Hollow.
I’ve had to add teaspoons, and a fork to the set, and when I’m shopping at antique stores, flea markets, or garage sales I keep my eyes open for this pattern.

I use them for special luncheons, teas. I’m planning to pass the set to my daughter sometime in the future.

I developed this in Photoshop CS6 then jumped over to Silver Efex Pro 2 for the antique plate and vignette.
