For my classes, I type an identification tag and tie it with a ribbon to the serving piece. That way I can pass the pieces around the room and everyone knows exactly what they are!
I did a program in December for the Nevada chapter of the DAR. Some of the pieces I chose to take, among other things:
Baked Potato Fork
It's a fun collection and although requiring polishing, it does take up very little space in the sideboard drawer.
And I use it -- although, perhaps not for the intended purpose for whenever I have company and have a buffet (whether it is the meal or just a dessert buffet for a meeting), I always use some of my Victorian silver. And it's surprising that a pea spoon can really be used for other vegetables and a bacon fork is great for little cakes!
I'm sure a proper Victorian would be aghast at that usage but it suits me and I love using these pieces whether or not I cause a proper Victorian to turn over in their grave!
