As silver flatwares are passed on to further generations, methods have to be employed to have it retain its glow and shine over the years. The thumb rule is to use it regularly and to store it in tarnish resistant flatware chest. If it is stored this way then it can be polished once in two years only. It has also not to be wrapped in paper, rubber or plastic material as it looses it natural glow.
A demitasse spoon by Towle is used to serve after-dinner refreshments. It is ideally used to serve tea or coffee. Dinner forks and knives are also available. These are used to eat solid food. However, dinner forks and knives of continental size are much bigger and heavier than regular dinner knives and forks. Double jigger is a type of flatware that is used to measure liquor so as to prepare mixed drinks.
One similar brand of flatware to compare is Gorham. This is a flatware provider whose legacy goes all the way back to 1831. Though it is similarly priced to Othenia, Gorham has much more of an elegant and traditional design. With Othenia being an Oneida brand, they also offer an open stock policy which Gorham does not. This means that if you were to lose a piece of your silverware from Gorham you would have to buy a complete set to replace your lost piece. With open stock you are able to buy a single piece to replace the one that has been lost without spending a fortune on an entire new set.
Style plays a key role when it comes to flatware design. As with dinnerware, flatware needs to be a reflection of your lifestyle and personality, no matter if it is casual or formal in nature. No matter whether it is contemporary, traditional, or utilitarian, you will want to choose this according to the type of dinnerware that you own so that the styles do not clash. This is especially true if your dinnerware is either plain and/or solid in color or if there is a pattern.
