Cutlery items were formerly made of solid silver and were very valuable. These prestigious objects (called ‘silverware’) were manufactured by skilled goldsmiths and were transmitted from generation to generation. Today, solid silver cutlery which are a reminiscence goldsmith golden era, are real collectibles.

  • Tablesetting: a real tradition

Formal dinner place setting and table scaping are a real art where the table decoration, food presentation and service are of utmost importance. The cutlery should be arranged as per traditional habits and customs. We distinguish between French table setting and English table setting. In the United Kingdom, the custom is to place the rounded side of the spoon against the tablecloth and the fork prongs fac. In France, the rounded side of the spoon will face upwards and the fork prongs facing the tablecloth to make the cutlery bearings visible.

Keep in mind that cutlery is usually placed around the plate according to the order in which it will be used. In France, it will be in an ‘outside in’ order. Regarding the position of the table knives, make sure that the knife blades face towards the inside of the plate.

Which cutlery to choose?

Nowadays, cutlery items are commonly made of stainless steel or silvery metals. Stainless-steel cutlery is very sturdy and resistant to scratches, tarnishing and fading. Our collection includes different types of stainless steel items including 18/0 stainless steel items or 13/0 stainless steel items. These figures indicate the proportion of chromium (corrosion resistance) and nickel (brightness) present in the cutlery in accordance with European standards. The materials used in the manufacture of the cutlery ensure longevity and convenience. Thus, mirror-polished stainless steel will give a contemporary flair to your table decoration thanks to its rich light gray color.
