On Display: Kistler Family Serving Ware

The College has collected an assortment of serving ware over the years, including several tea sets, dishes, flatware, and serving pieces. The Kistler family donated many of their beautiful serving sets and other items to the College posthumously. The Kistler items are usually monogrammed with the initials "K" for Kistler or "BKK" for Bertha Kaul Kistler. A selection of items from this collection from the College Archives are currently on display on the first floor of Gertrude Kistler Memorial Library. Please stop by to see these beautiful pieces in person.
