|Tiffany & Co. Bamboo|
Bamboo (circa 1961). Introduced in 1961, Bamboo was designed by Tiffany's then Design Director, Van Day Truex. In 1965, Bamboo won the International Design Award for silver. Its simplicity and character have made it a favorite for modern table settings, but the thematic reference to 19th century Chinoiserie decorations makes Bamboo compatible with more traditional interiors as well.
This sterling pattern is highly collectible. Alas, it is not mine. But I do like the idea of a bamboo pattern in stainless steel for everyday use.
I have loved reading about everyone's china patterns.
Do you have a sterling pattern you love?
Does anyone have a suggestion for a bamboo pattern in stainless that is elegant - not just your generic cheap version? I would love to get a new set. I have tired of my RL Equestrian Braid.
BTW, my sterling pattern is Kirk Steiff Williamsburg Shell.

And finally, I have read that you can wash your sterling flatware in the dishwasher so long as you do not use lemon or citrus dishwasher detergent and you place the sterling in a separate compartment away from stainless steel. Has anyone tried this? It would encourage me to use my sterling more.
