The entire components of this antique service have been crafted by the renowned Birmingham silversmiths Elkington & Co Ltd in 1902, apart from the table and dessert knives.


The bone handled knives were crafted in a similar period by John Round & Son of Sheffield and are fitted with steel blades.

The additional cost is pound sign1750 and could be dispatched immediately, with the rest of the service. For further information please contact Andrew Campbell directly at enquiries@acsilver.co.uk.


These impressive examples of antique silverware are supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduces tarnishing.
