Every piece is hallmarked for 1992 and made by the top Sheffield firm of Roberts & Belk. The service benefits from having no personalised engravings to any of the pieces and is in first class polished condition. It is presented in a particularly attractive,  high quality wooden box.

This attractively shaped box has a serpentine fascia, stands on four ogee feet and has a green velvet lined interior with each piece having its own slot to prevent scuffing. The box is in generally excellent condition, however there is a repair to the far right top corner (see final photo).
