Splayds - Remember these

Popped in to our local op-shop yesterday and found some great bargains. Still in its original box were a set of 70's ? vintage buffet forks, (Westminster brand). We have another brand of these at home, and use them all the time, so some more will come in handy. Splayds is the name of the original buffet fork and is what most people call them.


And......I also found this lovely italian glass water jug.
I'm sure it will see a lot of use this summer. I can just picture it filled with lots of ice, water and sliced limes, or perhaps some Sangria?......

Cheerio for now

Sounds like you're looking forward to a wonderful summer. Whereas, we're hunkering down for winter now. Enjoy.

You have brought back memories. My family still has our set. My parents were given 2 sets as a wedding gift in 1970.

Our Splayds don't have a coloured handle, they are all in one metal, but they still live in the cutlery drawer! I like coloured water jugs myself, plastic or glass, but clear is pretty too :)

You are very well informed and very brilliant. You did something that people are able to understand.
