An Illustrated History of Design, Evolution and Use
This richly illustrated book provides a comprehensive survey of the design and evolution of cutlery in Britain from Neolithic times to the present day. Over 500 examples of cutlery and table settings are described and reproduced in colour together with engravings, makers’ pattern books and other documentary records. This book also includes the use of cutlery at table, the etiquette of dining and the development of eating implements across five millennia.
This publication is both an invaluable resource for museums, collectors and dealers and an important contribution to our knowledge of the presentation of meals at table.
