    VENTFORT HALL MANSION AND GILDED AGE MUSEUM, SATURDAY, MAY 25 Tjasa Sprague, an observer and advocate of fine table settings, will present a Tea and Talk on "Splendid Tables" at Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum on Saturday, May 25, at 4:00 pm. A Victorian Tea will follow her talk. Sprague will delve into the subject of tablescapes, having noted over many years the ways in which people have set tables and having been inspired by a recent lectu...re at the Clark Art Institute that introduced the audience to images of historical table settings. As wealth and a more refined life style increased over the centuries, table settings became more splendid with, for example, extravagant china, crystal and silver, salt cellars and epergnes used as centerpieces.
