A celebration of 100 years of dynamic change in Home Economics

China and Silverware from the Home Management House and Dietetics Courses.

    Over the years several patterns of silverware and china were used in the Home Management House and later in dietetics courses. The largest set of silverware is Community Silver Plate with "SPN" engraved on the handle. It looks like we had a large service for 20 or so with a wide array of serving pieces. Forks, as near as we can guess are from right to left for shrimp, dessert, salad, dinner. Our guess for spoons from right to left are coffee/tea, soup, dessert, flat, small, large.
