Monna Lisa – The New Cutlery Model Preview

Monna Lisa – The New Cutlery Model Preview

During a visit to London, I was walking along one of the many back streets of London that are so often unknown to the tourist, and to my surprise, on passing an antique shop, I saw an 18th early 19th century fork that caught my eye.

The fork in itself was nothing particular, and in fact it was probably a production reject as the bottom of the handle was unfinished, but the ferrule (the part that separates the steel from the handle) had something that I liked.

I could not resist it, I bought it immediately.

The fork stayed for many years in one of my draws, and being one of those “tidy, but untidy” persons, I nearly lost it more than once.

I have always been looking for a model that could support our Eme Napoleon cutlery model, without subtracting from it.

In creating  Monna Lisa, I believe that the balance has been found, and I am very pleased with my creation.

I hope that my readers will feel the same.
