Personalised Vintage Bakelite Butter Knife
Standard Delivery: £3.50 and FREE for orders over £50
All of the cutlery is made to order by us, 'the Spoonettes', and we aim to dispatch orders within 7 days - this lead time does vary though and we often process orders much quicker (fuelled by caffeine & fast techno music).
Royal Mail International Tracked: from £12.50
This is our most cost effective international shipping option which, depending on the country, takes approximately 5-7 days.
We want you to be 100% happy with your order – and we are certain you will be! But if you’ve purchased a non-personalised item and you wish to return it you have 7 days to notify us to request an exchange or refund.
Unfortunately, some items are non-cancellable and non-refundable: Anything that’s made to your specific requirements, is personalised or otherwise can't be resold due to a bespoke element. Or creative pieces that are specially commissioned when you place an order.
Please therefore double-check all the personalisation details before checkout to avoid disappointment.
Once touted as `kitchen jewellery' Bakelite flatware is making a comeback!
Our hand stamped cutlery differs from engraved cutlery because here at The Cutlery Commission ‘The Spoonettes’ use traditional, industrial tools to indent every single letter into the silver plate itself. Therefore marks made during the personalisation process are expected and spacing and alignment of letters are not exact. It all adds to the whimsical and charming look that makes your commissioned piece of cutlery such a unique gift.
Each commission will arrive tied in chiffon ribbon with a branded tag and tiny spoon charm; all wrapped in our bespoke acid-free tissue paper and ready to be given as a gift...or kept for yourself!
The cutlery itself is hand crafted from brass and then silver-plated. None of the items are therefore dishwasher safe and we recommend hand washing in warm water. Although the cutlery is useable, being silver plated means that it is prone to tarnish over time and should be treated more as a keepsake rather than an every-day utensil. And remember – silver cutlery loves a good polish now and then!
