Each spoon and fork is further ornamented with a thread decorated border in addition to the Military Thread pattern scrolling ornamentation to the heel.

The fundamental pieces of this antique silver flatware service have been crafted by the renowned London silversmith Asprey & Co Ltd in 1921, apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements**, crafted by Barry Witmond in 2015.

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

* "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: 1921


This antique sterling silver service is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse of each piece are all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine and impressive canteen.
