Fashion is a mobile process, it goes and comes back, but there are things that technology has replaced and now it is only useful for vintage decoration. Along with this, nowadays, dishes and other accessories are chosen according to individual style, so what was fashionable according to etiquette is now a thing of the past.
An antique fork
The fork, created at the beginning of the 20th century, was popular for a long time and was used by almost everyone who wanted to set the table according to etiquette. Now square dinner forks are the standard, and polished, ornate silver forks are only placed in antique shops.
Water, white wine, red wine, juice, champagne - yes, every liquid had its glass, and there were plenty of glasses on the traditional table. Some people still have a cupboard full of mugs, but it is not trendy anymore.
For decades, precious chinaware has been used for weddings. Renting these dishes was quite an expensive pleasure, and those who had them at home considered them as family heirlooms. Expensive chinaware is becoming less and less common, as modern couples choose other things instead of luxuries for their weddings and spend money more wisely.
Both charming and practical, these cups were used to prevent soft-boiled eggs from spilling on a plate. However, the popularity of soft-boiled eggs declined, so the cups moved from the table to the cupboard.
Along with the invention of the table, a Runner was also invented, which protected it from spilling, because washing large tables was quite difficult. The washing machine has simplified the washing process, so there is no need for a Runner anymore. Now the Runner is no longer on the list of essential items, but it is actively used for decoration.
spoon of jelly
It is a combination of a spoon and knife used to eat jelly and soft fruits. Today, we rarely meet such spoons, because they have passed into the past, but it is possible that they will return to fashion because they are very useful for baby feeding.
