A fine antique Victorian English sterling silver Hanoverian military thread pattern flatware service for twelve persons; an addition to our silverware collection
The pieces of this fine antique Victorian sterling silver flatware service for 12 persons are Hanoverian military thread pattern.
Each knife, fork and spoon has a rounded heel.
The service consists of:
12 Table knives 12 Table forks 12 Table spoons 12 Dessert knives 12 Dessert forks 12 Dessert spoons 12 Teaspoons
The flatware is fitted to an oak lift up lid, well and single drawer canteen box which has a blue felt lined interior.
The box is ornamented with brass fittings.
Please note that with predominately all antique silver canteens, the knives are replacement knives as the originals have not stood the test of time.
The pieces of this fine antique flatware service, apart from the teaspoons, have been made by the renowned London silversmiths John Hunt and Robert Roskell.
Eleven of the teaspoons were made by Carrington & Co. in 1897, and one was made by George Adams in 1855.
The pieces of this Victorian canteen are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.
Full hallmarks are struck to the reverse of each handle.
The hallmarks have not been deeply struck and are therefore slightly rubbed in keeping with age, but still clear.
The oak canteen box has been professionally polished by a cabinet maker and is in excellent condition.
Although one of the brass escutcheons is missing, this does not detract from the overall appearance, and the box may be considered to be in presentation condition.
Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these items.
