It’s a busy time of year. End-of-year sales, holiday parties, and preparing for the coming year leave little room for reading in-depth articles. So we decided to serve up another Infographic for you.
When you are sitting down to holiday dinner or New Year’s Day brunch, take a look at the metal on the dining room table. Is that fork Sterling? Stainless Steel? Gold? How about Aluminum?
Did you know that aluminum was classified as a precious metal during the mid-19th century? If you were invited to Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte’s table during the late 1800’s, you would know just how important you were by looking at the place setting. Napoleon III gave aluminum cutlery to his most distinguished guests; all the other guests had to eat with gold cutlery.
