The fundamental pieces of this silver cutlery set have been crafted by the renowned Birmingham silversmiths Elkington and Co Ltd between 1917-1923, apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements*; the components will have been crafted in less years but due to the hallmarking system the items are struck with the date letters s, t, u and y.

This antique flatware service is supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduce tarnishing.

* Predominately all antique silver canteens have replacement knives as the originals have not stood the test of time.
