A superb and heavy quality pair of antique silver salad servers in the King's pattern and made by the great cutlery maker, George Adams. The pieces are double-struck, meaning that the pattern is featured on both sides - a sign of superior quality - and the pattern is exceptionally crisp with virtually no sign of wear. Each server is engraved with a family crest of a hunting horn.

King's pattern is the most popular of English patterns, featuring the honeysuckle flowers and shell motif. Credited to the silversmithing brothers John and Henry Lias, the pattern dates from around 1820 and was heavily influenced by the decor and ornamentation of the period.
