Vintage Bamboo

Some things I collect slowly over time, as I find them at bargain prices at thrift stores, estate sales, etcetera. One of the things I collect this way is vintage bamboo silverware. Right now I have a fairly small collection, but I know if I want to complete it, I can go to eBay or etsy to do so.

This is my collection so far, some utensils, napkin rings, nut cracker, two
boxes and some sort of holder. I would like to greatly increase the number of utensils I have and get more napkin rings.

Here's a better view of what the flatware/silverware can look like.

I like these bamboo place card holders, though honestly, I have never used a place card holder in my life! But since they're made of bamboo...

Isn't this a lovely table setting? The green looks really nice with the bamboo and planter of succulents really adds a nice touch.

Haus and Home
Another lovely table setting. Again the greens, flowers and what I think is a nice touch for texture are the jute place mats and covered planters.

If the bamboo cutlery is not your cup of joe, look how nice this bamboo place mat looks against other elements in this photo.

What kind of cutlery/silverware do you collect? Do you have an item you are collecting slowly over time?


  1. Nice touch the bamboo - I've not seen a set like that before.

  2. love the bamboo, great find! love ebay and etsy!
