Inscribed: "Life itself is the most wonderful adventure" with Hans Christian Anderson's signature. This quote from the book, What the Whole Family Said, continues "and you have a part in it yourself". There is also a variation in the next paragraph of the book, "life is the most wonderful fairy tale!". Anderson was of course known for his fairy tales including, The Little Mermaid, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Red Shoes, The Princess and the Pea, among others. His stories have inspired ballets, animated and live-action films and plays that express themes that transcend age and nationality.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
