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 use 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.
$10 members, $12 non-members
This event will take place via Zoom. Details will be sent to registrants who reserve at least two days in advance.
The Gibson House is a historic house museum located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. Now a National Historic Landmark, the home served as residence to three generations of Gibson family members and their household staff between 1859 and 1954. The Museum’s four floors of period rooms, including the original kitchen, are a time capsule of domestic life in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. www.thegibsonhouse.org
