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, nutmeg 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.
