SILVERWARE MARRIAGES

A topic devoted to silverware marriages, pieces that are made from items, or parts of items, not intended for their original intended use. Sometimes, on occasion, these pieces work, but often they are the silverware equivalent of Frankenstein's monster.

If you have an example in your collection, be it good or bad, please share it here.
