The pieces of this silver flatware set, including the original knives, have been crafted by the Sheffield silversmiths Walker & Hall in 1956; these items will have been crafted in the same year but due to the hallmarking system the bases are struck with the date letter 'N' and 'O'.


The knives are fitted with the original blades and bear the mark 'Walker & Hall, Non-Stain, Sheffield'.


This Walker and Hall cutlery is supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduce tarnishing.


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