We all have a dining table in our home where everybody sits together and have their meal. And the tableware is an important component of the dining table. We cannot have our lunch, breakfast and dinner without them.Tableware is the dishes or dishware that is mainly used for dining, serving and decorating the table. The arrangement of tableware differs from occasions to occasions. It also depends on culture, cuisines, number of guests and religion.
In recent centuries, dinnerware is usually made of pottery, ceramic materials, such as pottery, stoneware, bone china or porcelain. The success of ceramics is probably due to the slow development of ceramic glaze in europe; if there is no glass surface, pottery tableware may not be hygienic. Tableware can be made of other materials, such as wood, tin, rattan, silver, gold, glass, acrylic and plastic. Before mass-produced tableware can be purchased, it is made of usable materials, such as wood.
The industrialization and development of ceramic manufacturing has made cheap washable tableware available. It can be sold by piece or as a matching set for many diners, usually with four, six, eight or twelve seats. Buy in large quantities for restaurants. Individual parts can be obtained from the store’s “out-of-stock” inventory or from antique dealers (if the pattern is no longer produced), such as parts that need to be used as replacement parts for broken tableware. Cutlery is usually made of some kind of metal, but large items (such as ladle used for serving dishes) may be wood.
