DINING ACCESSORIES

 

STERLING
Prior to the 1860s, sterling silver was expensive and generally available only to the wealthy. With the discovery of silver at the Comstock Lode in Nevada (then Western Utah Territory)  in 1859, sterling became both less expensive and more desirable. Extravagant accessories and ornaments, so enjoyed by the Victorians, now decorated the vanity table, dining table and home. Some patterns of sterling flatware had an implement for almost every food type, with such exotic pieces as oyster forks, asparagus servers, cold meat forks, grapefruit spoons and tomato servers.
Victorian ladies owned cut crystal dresser sets with sterling lids, sterling chatelaines and sterling handled grooming implements. And the reflection of gas light on sterling created a soft glow that added to its popularity.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
