Lafayette is one of Ginkgo's top-selling flatware patterns, and with good reason. While the pieces are elegant enough for a formal occasion, the hammered finish on the handles provides a casual, almost handmade appeal. The handles taper from a slender neck to a rounded tab end which lifts up off the table. The spoon bowls are squared off for a contemporary look, the forks feature extra-long tines, and the knife is constructed of one solid piece.
This 45-piece set includes eight place settings, each consisting of a 9-1/2-inch dinner knife, 8-inch dinner fork, 7-inch salad fork, 7-1/2-inch soup spoon, and 6-3/8-inch teaspoon. Accessorizing the settings to complete a well-coordinated table is a five-piece hostess set, comprised of a 9-inch serving spoon, 9-inch pierced spoon, 8-1/4-inch cold meat fork, 7-inch pointed butter knife, and 7-inch sauce or gravy ladle. Brightly polished, Lafayette is made of moderately priced 18/10 stainless steel and is dishwasher-safe, making it ideal for everyday use. A family-owned business since 1977, Ginkgo International is dedicated to quality design and value when it comes to flatware for the home. --Ann Bieri
