Aluminum ware exhibit continues

The Friends of the Fred Drummond Home will be sponsoring a Hammered Aluminum Ware exhibit for the entire month of April. The pieces being displayed belong to many of the local ladies who collect them. From the early 1900s to around the mid fifties ladies used hammered aluminum for entertaining as it was easy to care for and much cheaper than silver. It was often given as wedding gifts to the newly married couple. It comes in all shapes and sizes with many patterns such as roses, tulips, wheat, birds, bamboo and many more. The Fred Drummond home is located at 305 North Price, Hominy, Oklahoma 74035. For more information, please call: 918-885-2374.
