The Victorian Lunch Table.


Love the early photography in this one! The directions for setting the luncheon table will not be familiar. Take a look at the picture itself, then the directions below. You’ll notice multiple forks and knives. I really like the little tea kettle set-up in the center of the table. When did that go out of fashion?


Note that there is some clever advertising going on for the Emporium.
