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.
