SKU A9790

The pieces of this exceptional, antique Victorian straight*, sterling silver flatware set for six persons have been crafted in Queen's pattern.


The surface of each fork and spoon handle is embellished with the classic Queen's pattern ornamentation, including a convex shell design to the terminal, in addition to the scroll bordered honeysuckle and rosette design.

This Queens pattern flatware set consists of 30 pieces:

Basic Service:
6 Table forks
6 Table spoons
6 Dessert forks
6 Dessert spoons
6 Teaspoons

The components of this antique Victorian service have been crafted by the London silversmiths Thomas Alfred Slater, Walter Brindsley Slater & Henry Arthur Holland of Holland, Aldwinckle & Slater in 1896; as expected with period flatware crafted in London, this canteen is a superior gauge of silver.
