Yes, Liberty Tabletop flatware is completely MADE IN THE USA from stainless steel sourced from USA mills and crafted into flatware in a upper New York State factory using local workers employed by American owners. The finished flatware is packaged in USA made packing materials and if that isn’t enough, how about using accounting, legal and advertising resources all local to the factory keeping the dollars flowing into their local economy.

The flatware known as Liberty Tabletop is manufactured by Sherrill Manufacturing in the rescued old Oneida factory between Syracuse and Utica NY.

If you have old silver plated flatware, give up the tarnish and switch to 18-10 Stainless. You won’t miss the tarnish or the cleaning process.

If you have Stainless flatware made in China, Taiwan, South Korea, Pakistan or wherever, repatriate your flatware inventory with Liberty Tabletop 18-10 Stainless Steel flatware MADE IN THE USA!



Proudly practice being an American!

 
6/17/2017 - A William Morris Treasure . . .
Inspired by watching thrushes stealing strawberries in his Oxfordshire Kelmscott Manor summer home kitchen garden, this Morris Strawberry Thief design became one of his most popular and recognized textile patterns. Morris began printing the design at Merton Abbey starting about 1883. The design was particularly popular on curtains, wall coverings and furniture covers.

Remastered by our artist, Fair Oak Workshops has the design giclee printed on canvas and framed by Dard Hunter Studios:

The print is 11” x 17” in a quarter-sawn oak frame that measures 14 ½" wide by 20 ½" high and includes a keyhole for hanging.

William Morris was born in Walthamstow London in 1834 and died in Hammersmith London in 1896. He was very prominent in the British Arts & Crafts Movement.

We think Morris is best described by one of his most famous quotes:

Morris was friends with the famous architect of the period Philip Webb. Morris and Webb designed the famous Red House in Kent where Morris lived for a time. Later he moved to Bloomsbury in central London where he became a partner in a Victorian Period design firm. The company subsequently became Morris & Co which lasted until 1940. Many of Morris & Co designs are under license and still available today.

Morris produced many items used to furnish and decorate including wall-paper, fabrics, textiles and tapestries, embroideries, furntiture and stained glass windows. He also designed typefaces, designed ornamentation for his Kelmscott Press publications, wrote poetry, translated and authored books. Finally he matured as an active revolutionary socialist.

We can say this Morris print is very USEFUL as period appropriate Arts & Crafts décor presented as a BEAUTIFUL museum quality giclee print framed in quarter-sawn oak.

We hope you like it!
