Description


The pieces of this exceptional sterling silver flatware set for 12 persons have been crafted in the Old English pattern.


The anterior surface of each fork handle and the reverse surface of each spoon handle features a pip to the terminal.


This silver flatware service for 12 consists of 66 pieces:

Basic Service:
12 Table knives
12 Table forks
6 Table/Serving spoons
12 Dessert knives
12 Dessert forks
12 Dessert spoons

The fundamental pieces of this service have been crafted by the Scottish silversmiths Brook & Son in 1924;  apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements**.


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. These replacement handles are a superior gauge of silver.
