Fish sets started being produced during the 19th Century, and rose to prominence during the Victorian period with the increase in wealth in the country and the resulting demand for extravagant silverware. In the 18th Century two forks were used for the eating of fish, a tradition that lasted into the 19th Century when the silver bladed fish knife started to be favoured for its more refined look. Fish sets have been produced with silver, bone, ivory and mother of pearl handles, and in a huge variety of designs since then, and are extremely popular pieces for the table today.
