I realize these pictures give you no sense of scale (sorry!) but these are beautiful, long handled serving pieces. I love how modern they look. I couldn't get rid of all the tarnish and they still have a few stains, but I love them.
P.S. You guys are the smartest. I tried the baking soda + aluminum foil trick that Abbie recommended and a few others seconded. I lined a dish with aluminum foil, set the silver on it and sprinkled it generously with baking soda before covering it with boiling water. It didn't make my pieces look polished (they were tarnished to the point of blackness) but when I took them out about half and hour later and wiped them with regular silver polish, it was amazing. So much easier than before. I think it cut my polishing time in half.
