Traveller's Tableware

The historic origin of traveller's tableware can be tracked in the time before the industrialisation when knife and fork were always carried by their owners.

The knife manufacturers of Solingen adapted to the travelling habits of the population from 1900 on and started to produce space-saving traveller's tableware in multifaceted patterns. These sets of tableware are also known as tourist's tableware.
