Monogrammed Cutlery Set

The finer things in life

This ornate cutlery set was owned by Elizabeth Finnerty, the eldest daughter of John Michael and Bertha Finnerty. It must have contributed to many special occasions and seemed very fine in the context of the Goldfields in the late 1890s. The dining room in the Residence is set out, with silverware and a tea set with gold details.
