In Georgian times, knife boxes were displayed on the sideboard to reflect the owner's wealth and style. Today knife boxes make a very elegant accessory in a modern or period home. 

Although normally referred to as "knife" boxes,  the beautifully shaped lids open to reveal cutlery decks in which there are apertures to fit almost any kind of knives, forks, and spoons.

A pair of knife boxes is usually equipped to hold twenty four knives, forty eight forks (including dining and dessert) and forty two different size spoons. This indicates that knife boxes would have a popular accessory in large Stately Homes and Country Houses.
