Pride cutlery

We've featured the designs of David Mellor on this site before, an 'unsung hero of design in the UK'. Though he worked on many different designs throughout his career, he's best known for his work in metalwork, particularly cutlery. His first, and also one of his most famous designs, Pride, has now been issued for the first time in stainless steel. 

Pride was designed back in 1953, when Mellor was a student at the Royal College of Art. It's been in production since the Fifties too, however only in silver plate. It's now been produced in the moderately cheaper stainless steel – retaining the same modern shapes that won the cutlery a place in the Design Centre Awards back in 1957. 

Prices start at £7 for a teaspoon and go up to the thousands for some of the canteens.
