Gallery 6 - Flatware & Cutlery

Click on thumbnail for larger image

Flatware, as opposed to hollow-ware, was the name given to spoons, forks and the like, bought from the silversmith, different from cutlery, which was knives and got from a cutler. When silver flatware first appeared in the late 17th C, etiquette and hygiene demanded that spoons and forks be laid face down, so the ends flipped upwards bringing the stems off the table to facilitate being picked up. As the Hanoverian style gave way to Old English, they began to be laid face upwards and the ends of spoons accordingly turned down, but curiously the forks remained unchanged.
