The fundamental pieces of this service have been crafted by the collectable, renowned silversmith and flatware maker George Adams of Chawner & Co between 1842 - 1874, apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements*.


This antique flatware service is supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduce tarnishing.


* Predominately all antique silver canteens have replacement knives as the originals have not stood the test of time.
