Quiver with knife and fork of Maria Zuberin, 1590. Wood: Netherlands or Niederrhein. Hardware and cutlery: silver, gold plated, iron, probably Switzerland. Museum für angewandte Kunst, Köln. Mehr in deutsch hier.
The fork was used only to pick up the meat, people did eat with their fingers. Forks as we know them prevailed in the 18th century.
