Author's Bio

Simon Moore has been interested in antique eating cutlery since the late 1960s. A study of folding fruit knives began with a gift from a friend and led to a wider interest, encompassing first spoons and then knives and forks. He is currently researching the origins or the influences on twentieth-century and later spoon designs.
