Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The anterior surface of each fork and spoon handle is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting a demi lion rampant holding in his paws a fleur-de-lis, all above the motto 'Fortiter et Suaviter' - Strength and Gentleness*.
Each spoon and fork has a pip to the terminal and the spoons have rounded heels to the reverse.
This Old English pattern cutlery service consists of 86 pieces:
12 Table knives
12 Table forks
12 Table spoons
12 Dessert knives
12 Dessert forks
12 Dessert spoons
Pair of Sauce ladles
The fundamental pieces of this straight** service have been crafted by the Sheffield silversmith maker J & J Maxfield Ltd in 1907, apart from the knives which are replacements***.
The replacement knives were made in 1999 by Terry Shaverin of the London silver Vaults and assayed in Sheffield.
This impressive antique flatware service is supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduce tarnishing.
* This crest and motto pertains to the family Sybly.
** "Straight" means all the pieces are made by the same maker in the same year.
*** Predominately all antique silver canteens have replacement knives as the originals have not stood the test of time.
