RE: [SCA Newcomers] Feast Gear
Karen Larsdatter has put together a great website that collects period
images of many things that are useful for getting small details right
http://www.geocities.com/karen_larsdatter/karen.htm The pages most relevant
to your search would be Feast Gear and Candlesticks (after looking at that
site I realised that the most common style of candlestick used in the SCA
the black wrought Iron style would actually be unfamiliar to a medieval
person and I made an effort to replace my candleholders with something more
period). This will give you an idea of what sort of styles you are looking
for so when you go to merchants (either online or in person) you have a
picture in your head of what you're looking for.

Subject: [SCA Newcomers] Feast Gear
Greetings to the list;
I'm still quite new to the SCA and although I've put together a piece- meal
of feast gear, I'm looking to build a setting a bit more set with my
recently decided persona.
I'm late 16th century english middle class and I'd like feast gear to match.
Can you knowledgeable gentles recommend specific utensils, dishes, and
accoutrements that would distinctly make the elizabethan table?
I hope to be able to have something to show at my local upcoming 12th night
feast on the 17th.

- As far as I know nothing designates it as 'Yul'. This lady simply had her feast gear at the 'Yul' is what I heard her to say. For my T W O pence worth or were they ducats:(I promise you I know nothing of Irish money) I believe the Irish like the peoples in the Norse lands were slow to adopt the fork. The Irish seem despite their proximity to have been fairly cut off from the goings on in Europe and were slow in adopting anything European preferring to continue their Gaelic traditions in stead.
