The “Silverware & Utensils” folder is one of four subdivisions under the “Table Settings” category.
A particular highlight of this folder is the Limited Edition Portfolio from the Lauren Stanley Gallery which showcases their collection of American Soup Ladles from 1800-1900. It comes with a separate booklet that includes extensive information on the exhibited ladles, their history and manufacturers. Detailed descriptions are included on the back of each photograph as well.
This portfolio contains 38 images, with a total of 70 pictures in the entire folder.
We recently received a donation of over 30 beautiful, though decrepit, children’s books from the early 20th century. The haul gave the existing Illustration – Children’s Books category a hefty influx of content and prompted us to divide the subject chronologically as follows:
Illustration – Children’s Books – Pre – 1920’s
Illustration – Children’s Books – 1920-1929
Illustration – Children’s Books – 1930-1939
Illustration – Children’s Books – 1940-1979
Illustration – Children’s Books – 1980-1989
Illustration – Children’s Books – 1990-Present

Below find samples illuminated and otherwise unadorned from our Picture Collection, ranging from the Italian Renaissance to 2006.
Following is a selection of sheet music from the 1879 book The Baby’s Boutique, Illustrated by Walter Crane, an influential, prolific illustrator that you can learn more about in our book stacks:
