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

The reverse of each spoon and fork features a convex shell to the heel.

This impressive straight** service consists of 58 pieces:

Basic Service
8 Table knives
8 Table forks
8 Table spoons
8 Dessert knives
8 Dessert forks
8 Dessert spoons
8 Teaspoons

Additional Pieces

The fundamental pieces of this service have been crafted by the renowned silversmiths Elkington & Co Ltd in 1900; apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements***.

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.

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