Boxed 112 piece Bead Pattern Canteen (12 place settings), Sheffield 1894 by John Round

 

The Service

We are offering for sale an excellent late Victorian silver 12 place settings canteen in Bead Pattern. The service provides for 8 pieces per 12 place settings with a good selection of serving items.

 

This is a straight and complete service, with all pieces original to the canteen and hallmarked for the same date and maker.  The pieces have a good hefty feel in the hand with the bonus of having never been engraved.

The knives and carving set are all bone handled.

 

Bead Pattern

Bead pattern is a very popular pattern because it treads the fine line between a plain and an ornate pattern. The shape of the handles is Old English pattern with an attractive border of beading to both sides (double-struck). Bead pattern was first in fashion during the 1770/80’s and was revived in the late 19th century.
