Favourite Item
The pieces of this fine antique Victorian sterling silver flatware service for eight persons have been crafted in Rich Bead pattern*.

The pattern’s bead and shell embellishment to both the anterior and reverse surface of each handle is convexed.

The reverse of each item features a convex shell to the heel.

This impressive straight** service consists of 58 pieces:

8 Table knives
8 Dessert knives
8 Table forks
8 Dessert forks
8 Table spoons
8 Dessert spoons
8 Teaspoons
2 Sauce ladles

The anterior surface of each handle, excluding the knives, is ornamented with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting a savage’s head amidst two arms in armour gauntleted counter embowed with hands apaumé.

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

* Rich Bead is a late nineteeth century Elkington pattern which later appeared in other catalogues under the name ‘Prince of Wales’.

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