Specially-designed with the toddler in mind, the Safari Baby Cutlery Set is an exciting new item by the highly regarded firm Carl Mertens of Solingen, Germany.
The set consists of two pieces. The first is an angled spoon for the right hand to allow a youngster without the mature reach to easily bring the contents to their mouth. The second is a pusher which is a rarely-seen utensil suitable for a child to use in the other hand to stabilize, cut or push food onto the spoon.
Designed in 2010 by the Carl Mertens team, the Safari set is embossed
with animal figures from the Carl Mertens archives dating back to the 1950s, when these designs graced another child’s cutlery set from that era.
The Carl Mertens firm, family-owned and operated, began in 1919 in the business of knife-sharpening in the city of Solingen known for superior stainless steel production. Its growth and survival is chiefly due to an unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship, as well as a keen eye for contemporary design.
Carl Mertens produces designs from prominent German designers, as well as its own extraordinary designs.
