Elements of the Victorian Dinner Table

The Victorians used a lot of tableware for their meals, often much more than we do today. Etiquetteer Robert B. Dimmick and Gibson House Museum’s Meghan Gelardi Holmes will talk about Victorian dining drawing from items in the Gibson House Museum.

The Victorians used a lot of tableware for their meals, often much more than we do today. Etiquetteer Robert B. Dimmick and Gibson House Museum Curator Meghan Gelardi Holmes will draw upon the museum’s collection to set an everyday table in the Gibson House dining room, highlighting things we don't often use today. Sharing information about Victorian table manners and menus, they'll explore the dining habits of the Gibson and Warren families and the roles played by servants.
