Anyone out there after some cutting-edge cutlery?
We’ve just picked up five boxes of classic mid century modern flatware.
There are six each of main course knives & forks, starter knives & forks – and spoons. That should cover lots of menu options!
They’re stainless steel with teak handles.
We love the handle shape and grain of the wood.
It was produced in the 1960s by Mills Moore of Sheffield – the steel city and home to some great cutlery makers. Other names that spring to mind include Viners, Mappin & Webb, Joseph Rodgers, Sanderson and Wolstenholm.
It’s a wonderful design in terms of both material & form – and was selected by The Design Centre – always a good sign when collecting pieces from the era. The boxes are tatty, but the contents are in good condition. We’ll try and get them into our web shop this week – alternatively, drop us a line if you’re keen to fill that cutlery drawer!
