Knives, Forks and Spoons – A Look at Unique Silver Serving Pieces in The Bellingrath Collection


  • Where: Bellingrath Gardens and Home
  • From: 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM
  • Admission: $13 for adults, $7.50 for ages 5-12, free to Bellingrath members and to ages 4 and under

Serving utensils are designed to cut, spear, scoop, grasp, spread, strain and transfer food from plates, trays, platters and bowls. Over the years, the original purpose of many of these uniquely designed pieces has been lost or forgotten. Tom McGehee, Curator of the Bellingrath Museum Home, will help us decode some of the mysteries of Mrs. Bellingrath’s silver serving pieces. If you have a mystery piece at home, bring it – he may be able to determine what it is! The event is part of the Wonderful Wednesdays series at Bellingrath in June and July. Visit bellingrath.org to view the full schedule; to register, email bellingrath@bellingrath.org, or call 251-459-8864.
