Descripción del proyecto
We are so familiar with eating utensils – the knife, the fork and the spoon – as with our own hands. But we all know that they have not always been part of our dining table culture. For a long time, until the beginning of the Middle Ages, the fingers were the real utensils to eat, using a spoon as a complement and a “multifunctional” knife. The forks had not yet been introduced into domestic uses.
Cutlery, as we know it today, is made up of a knife, a fork and a spoon. This tricotomy, and the creation of complete series with the same shape and decoration, were developed later, approximately three hundred years ago.
The culture of the dining table demonstrates the enormous importance that was assigned to it culturally and socially. Like all artistic and for daily use objects, the cutlery has also been exposed to the passing of time, and with it to the fashion trends and social modifications.
