Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Canteen of Cutlery for Twelve Persons
Offered by AC Silver
The anterior and posterior surfaces of each handle are enveloped with scrolling leaf ornamentation.
The decoration to each handle terminal incorporates a contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting a lion's gamb surmounted with a hawk.
The heel and shoulders of each piece are embellished with further scrolling leaf decoration.
This silver cutlery service for 12 persons consists of 88 pieces:
12 Table knives
12 Table forks
12 Table spoons
12 Dessert knives
12 Dessert forks
12 Dessert spoons
Pair of serving spoons
Pair of sauce ladles
The fundamental pieces of this service have been crafted by the collectable, renowned silversmith and flatware maker George Adams of Chawner & Co in 1850, apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements**.
This flatware service can be purchased without the plain knives if so desired, due to the rarity of the pattern identical knives are not available but an alternative King's shape pattern can be arranged; for further information please contact Andrew Campbell directly at email@example.com.
These straight antique Victorian services are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.
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.
