The pieces of this exceptional vintage George VI silver cutlery set for 12 persons have been crafted in the Plain Pine pattern.
The plain tapering handle of each piece is embellished with Art Deco style geometric panelled decoration with a stepped-down top.
The posterior surface of each handle is ornamented with a triangular panel to the terminal.
The original sterling silver forks have three tines/prongs; this is a fine feature of the service.

- Basic Service:

The components of this service have been crafted by the Sheffield silversmith and flatware maker Ollivant & Botsford Ltd between 1937-1941; the pieces will have been crafted in less years but due to the hallmarking system the items are struck with the date letters u and y.
This vintage silver service can be purchased with appropriate pattern knives if so desired; for further information please contact Andrew Campbell directly.
These impressive examples of Art Deco silverware are supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduces tarnishing.
