Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The surface of each fork and spoon handle is embellished with the classic Queen's pattern ornamentation, including a convex shell design to the terminal, in addition to the scroll bordered honeysuckle and rosette design.
The decoration to the anterior terminal of each fork and spoon, in addition to the brige of the tongs, incorporates the contemporary engraved initial 'W'.
Each piece features honeysuckle designs to the shoulders, in addition to the spoon, ladle and fork heels.
This Queens pattern cutlery service consists of 123 pieces:
18 Table knives
18 Table forks
18 Dessert knives
18 Dessert forks
18 Dessert spoons
6 Serving spoons
Pair of sauce ladles
4 Salt spoons
2 pairs of sugar tongs
The components of this antique Victorian service have been crafted by the London silversmith Elizabeth Eaton in 1856; as expected with period flatware crafted in London, this canteen is a superior gauge of silver.
The replacement** table and dessert knives have been crafted in the Queen's pattern; the knives were specially ordered at a heavier gauge to compliment the quality of this service.
The salt spoons retain the original gilded interiors.
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.
