Boxed 128-piece Old English Pattern Silver Canteen of Cutlery, Sheffield 1994-2000 by Carrs

The Service

We are pleased to be offering an excellent late 20th Century silver 12 place settings canteen of cutlery in Old English Pattern. The service provides for a full formal service of nine pieces per 12 place settings with the addition of six pairs of fish eaters and an array of serving items.

In addition to the standard pieces found in a canteen, this service has the bonus of some smaller knives and forks that could either be used as starter, side or dessert pieces as required. The huge soup ladle is a nice addition, plus the extra pieces give all round flexibility for this set.

Every piece was made in Sheffield between 1994 and 2000 by Carrs and benefits from being in superb polished condition with no personalised engraving. As usual, the sets of table, dessert knives and tea knives, together with the bread knife, pie slice and cheese knife all have silver handles with stainless steel blades.

All the pieces are housed in a Carrs 2000 Silverware box with a hallmarked silver label affixed to the inside cover. The box has a rare cantilever mechanism with the forks on the top deck and all spoons and servers underneath. There is a compartment tucked away at the back of the lower deck for placing the soup ladle and serving knives.

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 during the 20th Century.
