Our mission is education.
We seek to advance knowledge of culture, technology and social traditions by engaging the public through beautiful sterling silver objects that tell intriguing stories of many histories: social history, the history of technology and smithing crafts; histories of dining cultures, economics and family traditions.
Our focus is British, American and Russian sterling silver hollowware for the fine dining table. The collection’s time period begins with 18th Century George III pieces and extends to American 1920s Art Deco designs. As such, it is one of the largest, most selective, private sterling silver museum collections of fine dining objects in the U.S. It documents 250 years of dining traditions.
