That suggests Mercedes had women of their factory race teams, back in the day. Which I doubt.

The image may well fall into the category of sex sells, then and now, and cars in particular.

On the other hand there was Ines Keil-Folville who in the 1920s allegedly was the first professional woman race-driver. She raced Mercedes cars among other brands, competing with the great male drivers of the day and won four 24-hour races.
I only found this German Wikipedia reference

And there is also this dedicated website, also in German, but linking to an extensive photo album.

Yes, I'd heard of Ines Keil-Folville, but don't know a lot about her career. She likely drove Mercedes from time to time, as did most of the pros of the era. However I've never heard of a woman driving for any of the Mercedes factory teams.

Early mechanical street sweepers discovered not all the horseshit comes from horses, especially during an election year.

Because it keeps the likes of Crown Derby and Dartington Glass in business.

Or it would if the Chinese weren't undercutting everybody.

First, I wouldn't be able to identify that as a soup spoon. Very different from what I recognise.
Second, to me the layout is wrong, as the bread plate is in the wrong place, the napkin should be provided by the waiter so doesn't take up any space on the table, and a cup and saucer is NEVER used until after dinner. In fact tea is rarely served at dinner - coffee is far more acceptable in polite circles. And where is the fish knife?!

But it's a photo to show off a pattern, so I should stop being so picky.

Please note I did not grow up with this kind of dinner service; I was a silver service waitress, and that was back in the days when you could still actually get a slap from the Head Waitress if the wrong glass was in the wrong place.

Bunnies aren't just cute like everybody supposes.
They've got those hoppy legs and twitchy little noses.
And whats with all the carrots? What do they need such good eyesight for anyway?
Bunnies, bunnies, it must be bunnies!

Or maybe midgets.
