The Service

We are pleased to be offering an extensive silver canteen in Hanoverian Rattail Pattern. The service provides for eleven dining pieces for up to 12 people with an excellent range of serving pieces.

All the pieces are hallmarked for Sheffield 1993 and made by top specialist cutlers Roberts & Belk. The table and dessert knives, plus the cake server, have silver Hanoverian pattern handles and are engraved with the makers name and Furnival Works to the stainless steel blades.

The service has plenty of pieces to cater for a formal meal and the addition of fish eaters and an array of tea/coffee spoons allows for lots of flexibility. The range of serving pieces is particularly pleasing and includes a large soup ladle and two stunning 13" long basting spoons that are equally adept as servers. 

Each piece benefits from being in excellent newly polished condition with a good hefty weight and no personalised engravings. This is a fabulous quality service.

Hanoverian Rattail Pattern

Hanoverian Rattail was first in fashion between 1710 and 1730 and has been reproduced since the 1880’s. It was the first flatware pattern in the UK to be used for complete canteens in combination with pistol-grip knives. Due to its elegant lines and proportions it has continued to enjoy great popularity and is probably the most sought after traditional pattern. The front of the spoons and forks has the distinctive Hanoverian central ridge and the trademark rattail extension to the handle on the reverse side of the bowls.
