The fundamental pieces of this antique silver cutlery set have been crafted by Sheffield silversmiths Atkin Brothers, apart from the table and dessert knives, which are replacements**.

The anterior and posterior surface of the coffee spoons retain the original gilding to the bowls.

These impressive examples of antique silverware are supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduces tarnishing.

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

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

Condition
This antique cutlery canteen is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The service has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.

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

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine and impressive canteen.
