The Fred Drummond Home is having a hammered aluminum ware exhibit during the month of April, and needs aluminum serving ware to complete the exhibit.

If you have pieces you are willing to lend, please call the Drummond Home Manager, Beverly Whitcomb, Wed. through Sun. at 918-885-2374. If you don’t get an answer, please leave your name and number.

All exhibit pieces lent to the Drummond Home are logged in to ensure accurate recordkeeping. Pieces borrowed for the April exhibit may be picked up from the Drummond Home in early May.

Hammered, or stamped, aluminum ware was popular in the 1930’s through the 1950’s as an inexpensive alternative to silver.

These aluminum wares were given as wedding gifts with patterns depicting chrysanthemums, tulips, bamboo, fruit, leaves and game birds. The detail is amazing and many collectors recognize this craftsmanship while appreciating the affordable prices.

The Fred Drummond Home, located at 305 N. Price Ave. in Hominy, is open Wed. – Sat. 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sun. 12 – 5 p.m. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors 62+, $4 for students 6 – 18, $5 for groups of 10+, $18 for families of up to 6, free for children 5 and under, veterans, active duty military and OHS members.
