The Service

This is an excellent 129 piece straight canteen of silver in a sought after 20th Century Pattern. This extensive Louis XVI (Seize) service provides for ten pieces per 12 place settings.

 

Every piece is hallmarked for Sheffield 1970 with the sponsor’s mark of the Manchester silver retailer, Ollivant & Botsford. The set would have been made by Roberts & Belk on commission from the retailer. The service benefits from having no personalised engravings to any of the pieces and is in lovely polished condition.

 

Louis XVI Pattern
