Each piece of this service is fitted with an exceptional and large carved ivory pistol grip shaped handle ornamented with large scrolling leaf designs accented with foliate textures.


Each piece is fitted to the fine and impressive original hinged mahogany canteen box with a lift up lid and lift out tray.


The interior of the box retains the original velvet and satin lining, incorporating the retailer's mark 'Manufacturing Jewellers & Silversmiths E.H Lawley & Sons Ltd, 24 New St, Birmingham'.

Condition


This antique dessert flatware set is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent presentation condition.

There is some discolouration to the ivory handles, in keeping with age.

The presentation box has been professionally polished by a cabinet maker.

Full hallmarks struck to the anterior surface of each piece are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of each item of antique silverware.
