An exceptional, fine and impressive antique and vintage English sterling silver Trefid style pattern flatware service for twelve persons; an addition to our antique flatware sets

The pieces of this exceptional antique and vintage sterling silver flatware set have been crafted in a variation of the early Trefid pattern.

The surface of each handle terminal is embellished with the contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting a cat's head.

Each spoon features an impressive classic rat tail ornamentation to the reverse of the bowl.

The original sterling silver forks have three tines/prongs.

This sterling silver flatware set consists of 62 pieces:
Basic Service:
12 Table forks
12 Table spoons
12 Soup spoons
12 Dessert forks
12 Dessert spoons

Additional Pieces:
Pair of sauce ladles

The antique George V six place setting of the basic service were crafted by the London silversmiths Finnigans Ltd in 1917, whereas the remaining setting including the sauce ladles were made by Garrard & Co Ltd in 1968; each piece has the same gauge of silver and it can be determined the same die was used during production of the vintage service.

This flatware service can be purchased with knives if so desired, exact matching pattern knives are not available but a similar design can be arranged; for further information please contact Andrew Campbell directly.

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