Intro

My Work

All my miniature silverware is made exactly to 1/12 scale and works much as the original. Vessels are hollow, lids lift off or are hinged, and wooden handles are carved out of ebony.

All but the smallest bear the Sheffield assay office hallmark; the exceptions are the smallest items such as flatware, cutlery, egg cups and napkin rings.

Flatware and Cutlery

This flatware is fiddle pattern, so called because of the terminal shape reminiscent of a violin or fiddle. It originated in France and started to replace Old English here in the late 18th C and became popular in the first half of the 19th C. The ends of the forks continue to flip up and those of the spoons to go the other way.
