Fine set of antique Victorian Old English hand-forged silver flatware for 12 people, presented in its original wooden canteen.

Originating in the 1750s, Old English pattern with its simple clean lines, showing a single thumbnail to the reverse of the bowl and the pip on the front of the forks and the back of the spoons, is the definitive British flatware pattern and remains the most popular pattern through to the present day.

This handmade silver cutlery set comprises:

18 table forks
12 dessert forks
12 tablespoons
12 dessert spoons
12 teaspoons
1 basting spoon
1 pair of sauce ladles
1 soup ladle
4 salt spoons
1 butter server
1 pair of sugar tongs

Antique knives rarely survive, so this antique silver cutlery set is supplied with 12 pairs of new silver table knives and dessert knives, all with stainless steel blades meaning they are dishwasher safe.
