The Kings pattern subtly deviates from the traditional style as it incorporates a rounded stem to the handle.


The anterior surface of each handle is embellished with a bright cut engraved crest* depicting a demi griffin, in his dexter paw a sword erect.


Each spoon has a rounded heel to the reverse.

Basic Service:
12 Table forks
12 Table spoons
12 Dessert forks
12 Dessert spoons
Additional Pieces:
Pair of sauce ladles
Soup ladle
Gravy spoon

The fundamental pieces of this straight** Kings pattern cutlery service have been crafted by the Scottish silversmith and flatware maker Robert Gray & Son in 1845.


This service can be purchased with associated knives if so desired, for further information please contact Andrew Campbell directly.


This impressive antique kings pattern cutlery service is supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduce tarnishing.


* This crest pertains to the Gladstanes family; the family will later have spelt their name Gladstones/Gladstone.

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

Date: 1845

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

The Kings pattern cutlery decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved ornamentation is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse of each rounded handle show signs of wear in keeping with age, but remain legible; due to their location the hallmarks were not struck deeply.


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