New Silver Booklet: Lady Hamilton 1932

April 12, 2014

LadyHamiltonad2If you want your wedding dress to match your silver pattern, you could do that in 1932 when Oneida introduced the Lady Hamilton pattern in silverplated flatware. This modernist design continued to be popular right up to the time of American entry into World War II, when Oneida stopped manufacturing flatware, but continued to advertise the pattern. After the war they marketed it again until the 1950s.

The results of my research into Oneida Community patterns and products appear in my book The Community Table, self-published in 2004. That book is now out of print. I am replacing it with my American Silver Booklets, available to all, free. Click here to see and read available books on the history of Oneida and such popular patterns as Grosvenor and Deauville.

That Lady Hamilton Woman

Flatware, china and crystal, all in the Lady Hamilton pattern by Oneida Community.

For readers of my pages about American silverplate, I have added a new one. That Lady Hamilton Woman shows pictures from the exhibit of Oneida Community objects from the 1930s at the Oneida Community Mansion House Museum in 2012. Click here.
