In Medieval times personal eating implements were highly prized. Knives were displayed on the person in an ornate sheath. Spoons were part of formal dress for all social classes. Guests were expected to bring their own cutlery to a meal.

Before the 18th century the only items of table silver made in any quantity were spoons. Silver forks are rare prior to the 18th century. It is unusual to find sets of table silver dating earlier than the late 18th century.
