Boxed 84-piece Reed & Ribbon Pattern Silver Canteen of Cutlery, Sheffield 1996 by Carrs
We are pleased to be offering an outstanding late 20th Century silver canteen of cutlery in the popular Reed and Ribbon Pattern and made by Carrs of Sheffield.
The quality of this set is superb with each piece having a good solid feeling in the hand providing an overall silver weight, not including the knives, of over 4kg!
The set provides for a full formal table service with ten pieces per 8 place settings and a set of four serving spoons. The sets of table and dessert knives have silver handles with stainless steel blades.
Every piece is hallmarked for Sheffield 1996 and bears the sponsor’s mark of Carrs. The service is presented in a wooden box with a drawer with each piece having its own slot to prevent scuffing with its neighbours. The 16 knives are slotted in to the lid. The set is in superb, polished condition and appears to have had little use.
N.B. the current listed retail price for this canteen as new is £18,392!
