The Museums: Feeding Desire - Design and the Tools of the Table, 1500–2005 (Cooper-Hewitt, NYC)

"During the past 500 years of dining history...the basic forms of the table setting have changed to reflect shifting modes of behavior and cultural preferences. From the traveling flatware of the Renaissance to the extravagant silver tableware of America's Gilded Age to the pared-down elegance of modernism, each of the utensils on view provides a fascinating glimpse into the culinary culture of its period." -- from the website. <>
