Spoons probably have the longest history of any artefact and have been made ever since man discovered that handling liquids was vital to his existence.

In this new colour edition of a popular title, Simon Moore traces the history of English spoons, noting their social position in history and the many changes in style and form as their versatility was discovered.

Spoons that once graced medieval ducal tables and those of base metal used by commoners are illustrated and described. The author gives collectors some guidelines to follow should they find an antique spoon of unknown origin and date or be asked for an opinion. For this second edition the coverage of the British Arts and Crafts Movement has been expanded, examining its contribution to European design at the turn of the nineteenth century and showing how this influence was revisited on British design in the following decades.
