Image 2: Utensils

Utensils associated with meal preparation at Lafleur homestead.

This collection contains utensils associated with meals at the Lafleur homestead. The whetstone (left) could have been used to sharpen a carving knife; the knife and teaspoon were everyday cutlery; the inexpensive stamped larger spoon was used for serving; and the corkscrew for opening beverages. The handle fragment would have been affixed to a tang of a knife.
