This exceptional comprehensive sterling silver service is fitted to the original and impressive cross banded oak wood three drawer canteen table.

Two drawers have vacant and versatile storage compartments to the rear portions.

The box is fitted with original brass drawer handles and supported by four impressive carved cabriole style legs; this box is an impressive piece of furniture in its own right.
