Produktinformationen "Eight Centuries of European Knifes, Forks and Spoons"
This book introduces the public to the largest and finest private collection of European knives, forks and spoons in existence. A comprehensive survey indeed of this fascinating field for collectors! Knives, forks and spoons of all types and materials dating from the Middle Ages (13th century) to the Modern era (Jugendstil) are shown as they were used at the tables of princes, peasants and burghers or collected purely as "Kunstkammer" objects of art. All pieces are shown in colour and interesting features of cutlery of exceptionally fine workmanship are reproduced in an unprecedented wealth of detail. The introduction and the text accompanying the illustrations throughout give a broad overview while the catalogue describes each piece in depth with scholary accurarcy. Collectors and dealers alike will be delighted with the tables picturing all marks on silver and knife blades.
