This impressive service benefits from an extensive range of serving pieces, incorporating an exceptional matching silver fish and dessert service.


The fundamental pieces of the basic service were crafted by the Sheffield silversmith Emile Viner of Viner's Ltd between 1934-1939; these pieces will have been crafted in fewer years but due to the hallmarking system the components bear the date letters 'r', 's', 't', 'u', 'v' and 'w'. This service will have been retailed as a complete set and between the dates stated.


The stainless steel blades of the original composite handled table and dessert knives bear the mark 'By Appointment to the Late King George V, Viners Ltd, Sheffield' accented with 'Stainless Deluxe'.


This impressive canteen of cutlery is fitted to the original, fine and impressive oak three draw canteen table; this is an impressive piece of furniture in its own right.


The table is fitted with a pair of Art Deco style gilt metal handles to each drawer, in addition to plain escutcheons.


This exceptional cutlery table is supported by four plain legs with tapering knopped feet.
