David Mellor child's cutlery set
The only really well-designed cutlery for children. The Child’s Set, ergonomically perfect for ages 2-10, is just as well made as adult David Mellor cutlery. The taper ground knife is gently rounded, the wide fork is good for scooping and there is a practical general purpose spoon. The set is colour coded with acetal resin handles for easy recognition by a young child.
Since it was introduced in 1975 generations of children have enjoyed using it. So perfect are the shapes and so inspiriting the colours the Child’s Set has been known to be used by grown-ups too.
The 3-piece set comes in a yellow gift box. Matching David Mellor child's china is now also available.
Knife L:16.7cm, W:2.1cm; Fork L:15.6, W:2.4cm; Spoon L: 15.7cm, W: 3.7cm
|Material||18/10 stainless steel, acetal resin|
David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well designed tableware is a vital part of any interior. The company was set up by David Mellor, Royal Designer for Industry, in the 1950s. The first and now famous David Mellor shop opened in Sloane Square, London, in 1969 and soon became a focal point of Swinging Sixties Chelsea and remains one of London’s most original and individual shops. We run our own design office within the company and so the David Mellor collection is constantly evolving. Many of our products are designed by Corin Mellor, Creative Director, exclusively for the David Mellor shops and are produced by specially selected workshop producers and manufacturers. David Mellor now holds one of the most impressive collections of the finest British Crafts and sophisticated modern tableware and kitchenware, including the world famous David Mellor Cutlery, to be found on the international scene.
David Mellor was one of the great 20th century designers with an international reputation for his cutlery. He was born in Sheffield and trained originally as a silversmith. Examples of his metalwork are in museum collections as over the world. David Mellor established his first workshop in 1973 before moving production to his purpose-built factory, The Round Building in Hathersage, Derbyshire, in 1990. He has drawn on Sheffield traditions of craftsmanship in evolving a product altogether of our time.
