90-piece Silver Old English Pattern Canteen, London 1917/34 by David Fullerton


The Service

We are pleased to be offering a fabulous, early 20th century, 12 place settings cutlery service in Old English Pattern, which considering its quality, completeness and condition is being offered at a very competitive price.

The service includes the standard seven pieces per place setting, plus some basic serving pieces. All the spoons, forks and servers were hand-wrought in London by the premier flatware specialist David Fullerton between 1917 and 1934. The runs of spoons and forks are all the same length and have the exact same appearance, so that even when there are different years this is only noticeable from the hallmarks. A further bonus is that none of the pieces bear any personalised engravings.

This is a high quality service, with each piece having a great feel in the hand. The presence of the round bowled soup makes the set perfectly adapted to modern dining and the teaspoons are equally suited for use with coffee. The serving pieces include a pair of useful sauce ladles and four good-sized table spoons.

This beautifully elegant service is complemented with late 20th century silver handled knives. There are twelve table and twelve dessert sized that are fitted with top quality stainless steel blades. All pieces are discreetly hallmarked around the rings on the handles for Sheffield 1985 by John Biggin.


Old English Pattern

Old English Pattern was first introduced circa 1770 and has always been a very favoured pattern due to its elegant and simple form. It has been produced continually to the present day with a resurgence of popularity in the late 19th & early 20th Centuries. The plain, but stylish appearance make it one of the most popular choices of flatware patterns.
