*****Treasure Island Interiors*****
The dumbwaiter, a peculiarly British piece of furniture, was introduced in the 18th century to prevent servants from eavesdropping on the gossip, intrigue and scandal of their masters. The art of conversation was considered a great accomplishment in the Georgian period, and the romantic, political and business affairs of friends and acquaintances were all considered fair game for after-dinner gossip, sarcasm and wit.
The presence of servants tended to discourage this indulgence, and led, around 1720, to the introduction of a new piece of furniture, the dumbwaiter. This was basically a tripod table on castors with the central stem extended up through the table top to support one or two smaller, revolving trays.
The dumbwaiter was in just about universal use in British society by the end of the 18th century. Despite a short vogue in France and Germany, it remained essentially a British piece. Sometimes it was wheeled in at the end of the meal, piled high with sweetmeats, fruit and cheese, for the diners to help themselves; sometimes it sat by the table for all of an informal breakfast or supper, and held glasses, plates, cutlery and wine as well as food.
