Favourite Item
The pieces of this fine, antique Victorian Scottish sterling silver flatware service for twelve persons have been crafted in the Kings pattern.

The Kings pattern subtly deviates from the traditional style as it incorporates a rounded stem to the handle.

The anterior surface of each handle is embellished with a bright cut engraved crest depicting a demi griffin, in his dexter paw a sword erect.

Each spoon has a rounded heel to the reverse.

This flatware service consists of 52 pieces:

Basic Service:
12 Table forks
12 Table spoons
12 Dessert forks
12 Dessert spoons

Additional Pieces:
Soup ladle
Gravy spoon
Pair of sauce ladles

The fundamental pieces of this straight* service have been crafted by the Scottish silversmith and flatware maker Robert Gray & Son in 1845.

This service can be purchased with associated knives if so desired, for further information please contact Andrew Campbell directly at enquiries@acsilver.co.uk.

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

* "Straight" means all the pieces are made by the same maker in the same year.

This antique service is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The Kings pattern decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved ornamentation is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse of each rounded handle show signs of wear in keeping with age, but remain legible; due to their location the hallmarks were not struck deeply.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine and impressive canteen.
