I’ve always believed in trying to eat well and in style and one of the ways to accomplish this is to eat with proper silver flatware. You wouldn’t believe how many people think I’m pulling out all the stops when they come over for dinner and we eat with mine. Nope, no special occasion silverware in my house. Frankly, just sitting down to ANY weeknight dinner should be a special occasion in today’s fast paced world!!!
For my readers with large budgets who are modern in their investment and aesthetic outlook, today’s feature is one I can recommend based on its look and tradition. The Calypso by Ercuis, the 19thcentury Parisian silversmith, is a contemporary, chic and stylish pattern for silver flatware. Granted, the tiny scallops on the handles harken back to the Renaissance, the alternatives in handle color make it très moderne: black, blue, ivory, red and green. Pause for a moment and just imagine yourself at the table eating with these. Isn’t the service beyond words? It’s sooooo sybaritic!
