Re: [sig] Period eating utensils (Bohemia)
- I'd go with Predslava on this - the majority would be using wood or bone.
LATER materials might have included tin and brass, too. For the Bohemophiles
out there... this from the permanent exhibition in the City of Prague
Brass spoon, 16th century.
Brass spoon with mascharon, 16th century.
Cutlery was still not commonly used even in the Renaissance, with the
exception of forks used to transfer meat from the serving dish to the plate,
and various types of knives for carving and slicing.
