The pieces of this exceptional, vintage sterling silver straight* cutlery set for 8 persons have been crafted in the Charles II Lace Back pattern.

The reverse surface of each spoon, excluding the grapefruit spoon, features a rat tail and further scroll and foliate ornamentation; the lace back decoration reflects the same style to that of the handle.

The components of this vintage service have been crafted by the Sheffield silversmiths Roberts & Belk Ltd in 1979; the components will have been crafted in the same year but due to the hallmarking system the items are struck with the date letters D and E.

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

This exceptional service has been crafted in a highly desirable, antique style.

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