Cutlery has undergone a considerable evolution. Today's gastronomic culture could hardly be more different from that of our ancestors, though it has been said that the practice of eating hamburgers with our hands reminds us very literally of the customs and traditions of the Middle Ages and earlier!

Author Biography - Jan van Trigt
Jan van Trigt (1943) started his career as cataloguer with mark van Waay, the premier auction house in Amsterdam, where he worked for ten years. The fast stream of work of art he dealt with and described formed the basis for a very extensive grasp and knowledge of applied art and the Arts in general. After the Sotheby's take-over he focissed on silver, jewellery and non-European art. Since 1978 he has been an independent expert-valuer and researcher. In recent years he specialised in describing various important international collections. He is also involved in the acquisition of objects for these collectors.
