THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Lasting Style, Design
Found in Good Silver
By RUTH COHEN
Before the dawn of civilization,
everything was purely utilitarian-
a dish consisted of a hollowed out
gourd, a spoon was a shell set into
a split-ended stick and tied tight-
ly in place.
These crude implements per-
formed a necessary function, but
that was all.
As man became somewhat civil-
ized, he began to. embellish his
utensils with crude carvings.
AND SO TODAY, it is only to
be expected that design is of ex-
treme importance when purchas-
ing sterling silver tableware. Since
sterling tableware lasts a lifetime,
one wants to be sure that its de-
sign is not of transitory appeal,
but, instead, that it will always be
in good taste.
It should be remembered, too,
that the beauty of sterling is as
imperishable as the metal itself
and will last for generations.
Although the decision as to
what constitutes a "good" design
depends upon the particular tastes
of each individual, there are a few
general things which should be
FIRST, THE PROSPECTIVE
buyer should look for good prop-
ortions and good contour. There
are certain lines of :harmony and
symmetry that will be .beautiful
Second, one should look for
good balance. In well designed
silver, good balance will be im-
mediately "sensed" by holding
in his hand.
The next thing one should con-
sider in selecting his sterling silver
tableware is the deseign itself.
The creation of a well-designed
pattern is the work of an artist,
frequently requiring months to

AFTER THE DRAWING has
been perfected, it is modeled in
wax in order that the artist's idea
can be fully and accurately set
forth in the minutest detail for
the craftsmen who are to produce
it in metal.
There is just one word of cau-
tion in the selection of a pat-
tern-beware of "bargains".
In some cases the pattern is on
the bargain counter because the
design is inferior. At other times,
it is because the pattern is a dis-
continued design or the manufac-
turer is planning to discontinue it
immediately after the sale.
Finally, the opportunity of add-
ing to a sterling service is, of
course, of prime importance. The
purchaser will naturally want
only a regular (open stock) pat-
tern to which he can add at any
