EXTREMELY RARE PROTOTYPE ONEIDA COMMUNITY TWILIGHT PATTERN SILVER FLATWARE TRIMMED IN GOLD! THIS IS ONLY THE SECOND TIME WE'VE ENCOUNTERED THIS GOLD TRIMMED TWILIGHT PATTERN- IT NEVER WENT INTO PRODUCTION - IT WAS A TEST RUN AND NEVER OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC. YEARS AGO WE FOUND THE SOUP SPOONS, IT'S THE ONLY OTHER TIME WE'VE ENCOUNTERED THIS PATTERN DECORATED.
WE LIVE NEAR THE OLD ONEIDA COMMUNITY FACTORY- THE TEST RUN PIECES WERE LIQUIDATED IN THE FACTORY OUTLET. PIECES ARE MARKED: TWILIGHT COMMUNITY 2nd. WE SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH THE PIECES- THEY GOT STAMPED 2nd BECAUSE THEY WENT TO THE FACTORY STORE AND WERE NOT IN THE ONEIDA COMMUNITY SCOPE OF PRODUCTION. MANY RARITIES SURFACE IN OUR AREA FROM THE ONEIDA COMMUNITY SILVER FACTORY DUE TO OUR CLOSE PROXIMITY. TRY TO FIND THE DECORATED TWILIGHT ANYHERE!THE GOLD TRIM IS AT THE DECORATION BETWEEN THE HANDLES AND THE UTENSIL PORTION. WE WERE THRILLED TO FIND A COMPLETE SERVICE IN THE ESTATE OF AN ONEIDA COMMUNITY EMPLOYEE! 1 HAS A PIERCED BOWL.
IF YOU ARE A TWILIGHT COLLECTOR- THIS IS AN ULTIMATE RARITY. FINE GENTLY USED ESTATE SILVER. We do not know those charges throughout the world.
