Judith sets the table

24 Oct

Just what every bride wants in her gift registry: a set of forks (fourchette à piquer) with handles depicting a woman holding a severed head.

Personally, I would prefer to have this motif on my set of knives.

unknown, “Carved handle of Judith,” c.1600-1625, ivory handle, 5.21 cm, Château de Saumur, Saumur, France

unknown, “Tine fork with two teeth, carved handle of Judith,” c.1600-1625, iron tines; ivory handle, 5.21 cm, Château de Saumur, Saumur, France
