This little shop tucked in back of the Suburban Square Center is lined with shelves filled with antique, vintage and estate sterling silver and vintage brass. If you've ever pondered about a gift for someone ¿who has everything,¿ this is the place you'll find it, from the smallest salt spoon to magnificent candelabras to Judaica. The shop specializes in sterling serving pieces, in a multitude of patterns, many of which came from old companies in Baltimore, which was a famous center for manufactured sterling pieces. This 9¾-inch-by-7-inch footed repousse (which is a method of hand-hammering) sterling bowl ($6,950) came from the old Baltimore firm of James Armiger in 1885. The sterling candlesticks stand 14-inches high and feature tops shaped like tulips ($1,400 for the pair). Pikesville Silver & Antiques is at 629 Reisterstown Road. (its sign still sports its old name, Tarnish Intercon Industries). Call 410-358-3377 or 410-318-8388.
