The use of antique silver in the late 1800's is one of the major changes in lifestyle between then and now. The Martine Inn has an extensive collection including flatware and hollow-ware from the 1700’s, 1800’s and early 1900’s. Our staff uses spoon warmers, asparagus trays, tongs and merry-go-round cruet sets. The Martine Inn’s flatware silver set which includes 40 pieces to each place setting and 86 serving pieces is Lancaster Rose made by Gorham and introduced in 1896.
Hear the actual style and personality of many of the great pianists of the 1920's and 1930's on our 1923 reproducing baby grand piano. The rolls were made by the pianist playing on a special machine that measured volume, speed, intensity and inflection. The special rolls contain 10 more lines of information than a normal piano. Only the very wealthy of the early 1900's could afford the rolls which typically cost more than a factory worker's day's pay.
