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 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. 

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.
