Antique, hand-forged, one-date-and-maker, sterling silver cutlery or flatware set for 12 in the Old English pattern and fitted in its original wooden canteen box.

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 Old English silver cutlery set comprises:

12 table forks
12 dessert forks
12 tablespoons
12 dessert spoons
12 teaspoons (2 x Henry Atkin, 1948)
12 coffee spoons
12 imitation bone table knives
12 imitation bone dessert knives

1 soup ladle (1900)
2 basting spoons
1 gravy ladle
1 sugar sifting ladle
1 butter knife
1 five-piece carving set

For an additional cost we can add 12 pairs of new matching sterling silver knives to this silver cutlery service, fitted with stainless steel blades making them safe to put in the dishwasher.

Pictured are examples of Old English Spire, Pistol or Old English Pip knives, all of which would all suit this silver cutlery set perfectly.
