Rare English Georgian satinwood cutlery box with painted decoration. This style was developed by T. Sheraton and very rare to find in a cutlery box which is usually mahogany. Sheraton is a neoclassical style characterized by delicate straight lines, light construction, contrasting veneers, and neoclassical motifs and ornamentation. It is named for English designer Thomas Sheraton who published his designs in "The Cabinet Makers and Upholsterers Drawing Book" in 1791. It was the most reproduced style in the United States during the Federal period. The silver contained in it is all Georgian and dates from the 1730s through to the 1770s. All pieces are hallmarked. There are six dinner knives, six first course knives, six soup spoons, six pudding spoons, there are six forks and six tea spoons as well as a full set of fruit knives and forks in vermeille (silver gilt). There are some empty spaces which could be easily filled with additional at choice.
