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 Ne
vada
(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.
