This exceptional sterling silver English cutlery set is fitted to the original oak wood lift up lid canteen box with lift out tray; due to the loss of the 6 dessert knives and sifter ladle, the box has vacant and versatile storage compartments.
The box features a brass cartouche to the upper surface ornamented with the initials 'RLM' below a coronet.
