So what kind of vintage flatware do retro renovation readers prefer? I am going to be tied to the computer all day Saturday – so send me an email and/or photos and I’ll post them throughout the day. We did this with dinnerware a while back, and it was lots of fun.
Me? I use vintage Coronation stainless that my grandma Aggie Kueber gave to me shortly after I was married. I also bought a complete second set a year or two later, when Oneida reintroduced it for a time. I recently checked with the company, and the only “true” vintage pattern they still offer today is Revere – a very colonial pattern. You can also find complete sets on ebay – there are some real beauties.
Owning and using vintage flatware every single day is one of the greatest ways to be in touch (ha!) with the period!
