The fundamental pieces of this antique silver cutlery set have been crafted by Sheffield silversmiths Atkin Brothers, apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements**.

The anterior and posterior surface of the coffee spoons retain the original gilding to the bowls.

These impressive examples of antique silverware are supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduces tarnishing.

* "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.
