FACTS & HISTORY: At the heart of the dinner party was the properly set Victorian table, with individual place settings containing up to 24 pieces of silver to accommodate elaborate menus often consisting of up to 12 courses. It was correct to have the right piece of flatware or serving plate designed for each particular course.
The complexity of a formal Victorian dinner was a major underlying reason why Victorian dining rooms featured massive dining tables, sideboards and buffets. As many as eight forks could occupy one place setting, with an equal number of knives and an assortment of spoons to cover a myriad of food and drink items that included cream soups, clear soups, hot or iced tea, coffee and dessert. In addition to the flatware, tables were filled with serving dishes, condiment dishes, cake stands, fruit stands, cruets, asparagus tongs, game sheers and picks for butter or nuts.
