Animation of the Day: Tea Spoon from Ferry Farm

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory



Today’s animation is a tea spoon recovered archaeologically at George Washington’s Ferry Farm.  This spoon was used when tea was served in the Ferry Farm house, an important aspect of the proper duties of a gentry-class woman in the 18th century.
