The fundamental pieces of canteen have been crafted by the Sheffield silversmiths Roberts & Dore Ltd in 1932, apart from the replacement* Art Deco table and dessert knives, which were made by Walker & Hall in 1974.

The blade to each knife bears the maker’s mark ‘Walker & Hall, Sheffield’.

This impressive canteen of cutlery is fitted to the original, fine and impressive Art Deco style oak lift up lid and well locking canteen box, with a refitted navy blue velvet interior replicating the same style as the original covering.

The box retains the original working locking mechanism and original key.

* "Straight" means all the pieces are made by the same maker in the same year.

** Predominately all antique silver canteens have replacement knives as the originals have not stood the test of time.

Date: 1932
