Edward Gorey Salad Servers

  • $36.95

We can hardly imagine a better wedding present, hostess gift, or housewarming present than this pair of handsome salad servers—appropriate for both traditional and modern table settings—inscribed with this quote by Edward Gorey:

“Life’s a recipe-less salad that’s forever being tossed” 

The 12" long dark walnut fork and spatula with a bee's oil finish are made by a family-owned Michigan mill that has produced environmentally responsible hardwood products for four generations; an Oregon-based artisan has done the inscribing.

Each set is individually made and crafted. Natural variations will occur in the grain and color of the wood. 

Each server is 12" long x 2-1/2" wide at the serving end.

Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) was an artist, writer, and book designer. The creator of more than one hundred illustrated works—from a wealth of darkly hilarious tales full of enigma and intrigue to the animated opening sequence of the PBS television series Mystery!—Gorey was a master of the amusing, the strange, and the unexpected. His talent extended to theatrical arts as well as illustration and writing. Gorey was a playwright and an accomplished set and costume designer, with his Broadway revival of Dracula winning two Tony Awards. His artworks are collected and treasured throughout the world.
