English Fiddle Vintage cutlery is a classic design, recognisable from dining tables across the centuries. Robert Welch English Fiddle Vintage cutlery offers a traditional look with a tumbled finish to give the pieces a modern, matt lustre. The vintage patina of the finish brings an industrial edge to a classic cutlery pattern. Comfort in the hand is a Robert Welch Designs signature and the pebble smooth finish is soft to the grip.
Fiddle as a cutlery design has a long history. French in origin, it became popular in England from the early Georgian period. The name of "Fiddle" cutlery describes the fact that the handle is shaped like a fiddle, or violin. Our contemporary interpretation of this 18th century, elegant design simplifies the decorative elements, giving it a more contemporary silhouette. English Fiddle Vintage cutlery has a timeless look which is at home as part of a relaxed, everyday table setting or when dressing up a special celebratory table. With classic proportions and a Georgian elegance, English Fiddle Vintage cutlery will stand the test of time.

Care & Need to Know
We recommend washing your cutlery/flatware in the dishwasher:
• Wash on a short hot cycle 65°-75°C (150°-167°F)
• Use quality branded all in one dishwasher tablets*
• Keep Rinse Aid topped up and Salt (for hard water areas).
• Avoid washing with non-stainless steel metals (this can cause rust staining - especially on knives).
• Ensure the dishwasher filters are cleaned and use a proprietary dishwasher cleaner regularly.
*For UK customers we recommend Fairy Platinum Plus and for US customers Cascade Platinum Plus.
When washing your Cutlery/Flatware by hand:
Rinse cutlery/flatware to remove all traces of food as soon as possible after use. Wash in warm soapy water with a microfibre cloth or non abrasive brush**. Try to avoid soaking your cutlery/flatware and always dry thoroughly immediately after washing.
**Always avoid scouring with pads or abrasive cleaners as this will scratch the surface.
To restore your finish on your cutlery/flatware we recommend using a dry microfibre cloth.

Designing the Robert Welch way
Robert Radford Welch MBE, RDI was one of the most respected British designers of the 20th century. He believed that everyone should be able to use beautifully designed products in everyday life. After training as a silversmith at the Royal College of Art in London, he specialised in design for stainless steel, establishing a company in his own name in 1955.
Today, the company works to ensure its rich legacy remains an inspiration to the design team, whilst continuing to innovate in terms of technique and technology.
