Clare Clark – Traveller’s Cutlery Set

Victorian travelling cutlery set

My mother had two spinster aunts, called  Tizzie and Maggie, surname Hewson.  These aunts travelled to France to work for a rich family in Paris.  Auntie Tizzie was at the siege of Paris in 1870 and  Auntie Maggie, born 1870, went later.  She never returned to Britain, but stayed with the same family until her death.

They always travelled with their cutlery.
