A Happy Thanksgiving Day to all. This is a good day to bring out some silver and china.

The silver flatware and goblets are by many different US silversmiths; mostly from the 1840s or 50s. The plates are a pattern called "Bentick" that was introduced by John Ridgway & Co. around 1840. It was a very versatile pattern, came in various colors and continued to be made by predecessors of Ridgway well into the 20th century.

I just noticed that I forgot to put out the bread and butter plates so that says something about taking pictures before a party.

Above picture includes the bread and butter plate with a pearl handled butter knife. This plate and the service plate are made by Fritz and Floyd and the pattern is Medallion d’Or.

It is a great color for this time of year.
The Thanksgiving holiday has always been one of my favorite holidays.

I think this is wonderful! Every last detail. And I covet those plates.

I've always loved looking at table settings. Somewhere I have a book called "Tiffany Settings" or some such, which I bought when I was young. And I miss the days when you could go into major retailers (Tiffany, Shreve Crump and Low) and see umpteen places set out with various patterns.
