The entire components of this antique service have been crafted by the renowned Birmingham silversmiths Elkington & Co Ltd in 1928, apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements**.

The replacement sterling silver handled knives were crafted by Mappin & Webb in 1988 and are fitted with stainless steel blades featuring the maker's mark 'Trustworthy, Mappin & Webb, Sheffield'.

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.
