A Silver Night

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Empire Silver Co (31)

I remember asking over our CEO to a dinner at home once. I was new to the company so I was trying to impress the big boss and I was also trying to build rapport. I thought it’s going to be a smooth run until I realized, what we would talk about in that whole stretch while having dinner. I’m from the marketing department and he’s this finance guy who rose from the ranks with a quiet demeanor and a profound attraction to numbers. He’s exactly my opposite. I love music, art, sports and even entertainment; hence, I’m fond of hosting dinners. The day came and we sat for dinner. After the small pleasantries, I dreaded we ran out of topics that would be mutually interesting. Then he exclaimed, “Oh, you also got an Empire Silver set there.” I knew it would be one interesting night. It was.

Silverware care tips

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Empire Silver Co (31)

Empire Silver Co. offers an array of high quality sterling silver and pewter sets. From goblets to baby cups, and picture frames to barware, the silver signature is one of the best investments you can buy for your dining set. Still, you have to take care of this silverware to make sure its luster lasts a long time. First, make sure to polish them regularly. Even the best silver, when kept for a long time, develops some tarnish, which can easily be removed if you polish it on schedule. Second, keep your silverware in a wooden chest lined with protective cloth to prevent it from dust, dirt, and moisture. If you wish to display them, polish them every week to maintain their luster. Third, use warm sudsy water to wash the silverware. Don’t let them stand in water for long. Moreover, wipe them dry as soon as you’re done washing to prevent watermarks.

Babyhood heirloom

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Empire Silver Co (31)

There is a trivial but luxurious feel when collecting Empire Silver Co. items. Take the Baby Cups line. Empire Silver Co. presents a cute if not glamorous collection of baby cups that some people might mistake more as a display than a functional baby accessory. They cannot be faulted, though. The cups are rendered in unblemished gleaming silver. The lines are slender and rounding around perfectly shaped bends. The rims are riddled with symmetrical ridges that act as a stylistic embellishment as well as to help little lips get a steady hold of the rim when drinking. But go ahead use them for little junior. They are designed as functional items, really. But they are also an elegant heirloom, sturdy items that will pass the test of time, to remind little junior of his babyhood.

What is it for?

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Empire Silver Co (31)

Why would I give someone a dumb bell? I thought. It is one of those gifts that can elicit more than appreciation from the recipient. It is sure to invite curiosity and some dreaded questions. I hope she won’t ask me what the Empire Silver sterling dumb bell set is all about. I have no clue, too. Should it be used to literally tone the triceps? Or is it meant as a display? But I feel giving it makes a statement about my sophistication on gift-giving. Hey, it’s an Empire Silver, the same manufacturer of quality sterling silver and pewter that have graced mansions and palaces, I suppose. The idea of giving the sterling dumb bell, of giving something mundane a royal touch (it’s a sterling, after all, an Empire Silver sterling if I may add), tells me it is a uniquely thought gift. One that will impress her and, hopefully, enough to keep her from asking, “What’s it for?”
