[my monogram]

Han van der Voort's Homepage


I took this monogram from the silver spoon and fork that were first owned by my grandfather, Hendrik Willem van der Voort, after whom I was named. The spoon and fork date probably from the end of the nineteenth century. I have used them since the death of my grandfather in 1956, never really noticing the monogram on the back, just taking it for granted, until I realised how nice it was. Over the years it has worn quite a bit, so I'm glad I could save it (literally and digitally) in time.
