Product Description:

The book is based on the remarkable collection formed over the last forty five years by Bill Brown, one that is particularly strong in the early periods not often represented in museum collections.The book is divided into two parts: Part I contains chapters on the evolution of cutlery design; the ownership of cutlery; the use of cutlery at table, and the etiquette of dining. Part II illustrates the development of eating implements across five millenia. Introductory texts to each chronological period cover advances in design and usage and the influences from Europe. Descriptive captions accompany the illustrations of over six hundred pieces, especially photographed for the book.The resulting publication provides both an invaluable reference source for museums, collectors, and dealers as well as an important contribution to our knowledge of the presentation of meals at table.
