Set your tables on point with gorgeous vintage cutlery
I’m pretty sure my husband was raised in the jungle.
At 33 years of age, he still has no concept of placing his cutlery in an an orderly fashion on his plate at the end of a meal. So guess who doesn’t get to use my special vintage cutlery at dinner time? Well actually neither of us do as it’s kept under lock and key in my studio because keeping silver vintage cutlery polished to perfection is a bit of a b**ch!
When I first took on The Vintage Kitchen, the cutlery hire aspect was a bit of an added extra. As I stood in the Stanmore studio on day one, utterly overwhelmed by the sheer volume of STUFF we had just purchased, the mountains of vintage silver cutlery hire in the corner was the least of my worries.
Fast forward to now and I’m utterly obsessed with it. I’d never really appreciated how gorgeous vintage cutlery can totally lift a place-setting and add that extra sprinkle of class to your table. Whether you’re Katherine Middleton or Kath Day-Night you’re going to feel like a princess sitting down to a meal using proper silver plate vintage cutlery.
I have over 3200 pieces of vintage silver cutlery available for hire in my inventory, and due to...
the sheer volume of hire cutlery
most of it being as old as your Nanna, and
REAL vintage silver cutlery being sold originally in sets of 12-15 max
....my vintage cutlery is hired out as an assorted mix. I have tried sorting it all out into individual styles but it literally took a week of sitting on my studio floor and as soon as it went out for a wedding I was back to square one with the mind-numbing sorting and ain’t nobody (or my back) got time for that! So I now sort by type… and my dear, every type of vintage cutlery is available for hire. From main and entree size knives and forks, dessert spoons, soup spoons, teaspoons, cake forks, fish knives, butter knives, serving tongs, cake knives and more.
I am also increasing my supply of gold hire cutlery. I have been a little hesitant as I’m a bit of a purist and gold cutlery wasn’t a thing back in the day so what you see around today may look “old” but it’s not actually vintage. However, I am a woman of the people so what the people want the people shall get so drop me a line and we can discuss your numbers.
Now, you’re obviously going to need more than cutlery hire to serve a meal so check out the pieces available below and then head over to my vintage tableware packages to see just how cost effective it can be to set a beautiful table.
