133 Piece Silver Canteen for 12 people in Feather Edge,

Sheffield 1973/5 by R W Burridge (Harrods)

 

The Service

We are pleased to be offering a large, expansive 20th Century silver cutlery service in Old English with Feather Edge Pattern. The service provides for ten pieces per 12 place settings with an additional array of serving pieces.

 

This canteen provides for all your dining needs for up to 12 people and caters for a fish course and/or soup starter, plus after dinner tea and coffee spoons, as well the usual main and dessert courses. All the pieces are fully hallmarked for Sheffield 1973/75 by R W Burridge and benefit from having no personalised engravings to them.

 

The maker's mark on all the silver pieces is "RWB" for Richard W Burridge, he was the managing director of Harrods, the leading luxury department store in Knightsbridge, London. The stainless steel knife blades also bear the Harrods name.

 

Old English Feather Edge Pattern

Old English Pattern was first introduced circa 1770 and the addition of elegant engraved decoration along the border of the handle was first seen within the first decade of production. The feather edged border gives the pieces an extra feeling of quality and breaks up the plain Old English pattern.
