This impressive service benefits from a fine and impressive solid sterling silver fish service, crafted by C J Vander Ltd in Sheffield, 1967
The fundamental pieces of flatware have been crafted by the London silversmith Francis Boone Thomas of F B Thomas & Co in 1897, apart from the teaspoons which were crafted by John Aldwinckle & Thomas Slater, 1893.
The original knives have been crafted using the same handles and fitted with stainless steel blades; half the blades bear the marks for 'Roberts & Belk Ltd, Sheffield, England' and the others 'C J Vander, England'.
This impressive canteen of cutlery is fitted to the original, fine and impressive oak wood lift up lid and well, two draw canteen box.
The box features brass drawer and carrying handles, in addition to an incurved shaped vacant cartouche to the upper surface.
The interior of each drawer/compartment has been refitted with navy velvet replicating the same appearance as the original covering.
