The only really well-designed cutlery for children. The Child’s Set, ergonomically perfect for ages 2-10, is just as well made as adult David Mellor cutlery. The taper ground knife is gently rounded, the wide fork is good for scooping and there is a practical general purpose spoon. The set is colour coded with acetal resin handles for easy recognition by a young child.
Since it was introduced in 1975 generations of children have enjoyed using it. So perfect are the shapes and so inspiriting the colours the Child’s Set has been known to be used by grown-ups too.
The 3-piece set comes in a yellow gift box.

David Mellor was one of the great 20th century designers with an international reputation for his cutlery. He was born in Sheffield and trained originally as a silversmith. Examples of his metalwork are in museum collections as over the world. David Mellor established his first workshop in 1973 before moving production to his purpose-built factory, The Round Building in Hathersage, Derbyshire, in 1990. He has drawn on Sheffield traditions of craftsmanship in evolving a product altogether of our time.
