I found this article rather entertaining on the upcoming U.S. issue for the "Pioneers of American Industrial Design", specifically depiting tableware.

http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/cit...ver_a_ne.php

You'll note they believe this to be the only U.S. stamp ever issued with such a theme...just wondering if any other countries have used kitchen utensils on their stamps?

I doubt it will ever garner much interest as a topical collection, but "firsts" in philately always make headlines.

It would make an easy topical collection for the beginner.

I think you should be cognisant of using
the correct nomenclature.

"Tableware" differs from "Kitchen Utensils"

Kitchen utensils was addressed earlier
with a favourite design of mine, known in
Australia as a "Sunbeam mixmaster"
This is a utensil, but not tableware.

The use of the term "utensils" was based on the content of the article link, specifically:


Quote:
According to Paul Oelkrug, coordinator for special collections at the University of Texas at Dallas, home to one of the nation's top philatelic libraries, the nation's never before issued a stamp with utensils on it.

Tableware.

The dishes, glassware, and silverware used in setting a table for a meal.

Utensils: That which is employed in preparing a meal.

I see I may have irritated some with clarification,
I thought is was worthy of note, but perhaps it was
the delivery.

Rod222: If you may be referring to my previous post, please understand there is no "irritation" or otherwise felt on my part. I was merely pointing out the term used within the article which is what prompted me to title this post the way I did. Perhaps country-to-country there is some adjustment to the specific meaning of "utensils" as you pointed out.

Perhaps the best thing would have been to use the exact reference that is to appear on this upcoming stamp: Not tableware, dishware or utensils ... but flatware!

Would also echo sentiments... no offense ment or intended; it's the medium. Abrupt, misunderstood.

The genre of Tole (ware) refers to it as utensil... because it was either painted on basic wood or tin to be more "decorative". The container so painted was formerly a utilitarian utensil.

Knives, forks, spoons are considered the original utensils, with forks to very early Greece; Spoons to Paleolithic times.

Thanks guys :)
no I was referring to Xnbr "slice and dice"
I guess my post appears pedantic but philately is about
splitting hairs and learning sometimes.
I saw the image of the stamps as "tableware"
and thought if someone were creating a thematic
it would be in error including utensils.

I still could have worded it better.

The original author was at fault really, using utensils.

A case in point, if one were to use McDonald's restaurants,
you would see utensils but not tableware :)

Wow!

There's always something new.

I was previously thinking perhaps the first knives
on stamps were Chinese.
The issue that had "knife money" as the vignette. circa 1950

I was searching the old hazy memory for
further tableware, and could only think of George Jensen
the silverware craftsman.
In searching sweden, I came across those lovely
scans by lithograving of heaps of glassware manufacturing,
engravings by slania.

In amongst them was this one of UTENSILS on stamps,
the biscuit cutter and pie dish
