In the comments in Where is the word "cutlery" in common usage this question came up with no obvious resolution. In British English today the word cutlery just refers to implements used for eating, such as knives, forks and spoons. However this is not the definition given in the OED (where the current entry still dates from 1893), nor is it the usage one can see using Google books from the 19th century. What is the first usage of cutlery in its modern meaning?
If one needs more proof of the modern meaning, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cutlery says "The major items of cutlery in the Western world are the knife, fork and spoon." and a web search will show no end of shops in the UK selling knives, forks and spoons as cutlery.
To try to hone in on a date, in 1939 cutlery apparently included spoons and forks even in the US. See http://bit.ly/1a0P1hZ . There is also a linguistic distinction between kitchen cutlery and table cutlery.
