The Service

We are pleased to be offering a great opportunity to own a complete boxed silver cutlery set in a very stylish pattern.  This attractive service provides for ten pieces per 8 place settings with an assortment of serving and carving pieces.

All the pieces in this canteen were made by Cooper Brothers & Sons of Sheffield and bear appropriate Sterling silver hallmarks for Sheffield 1973-75 and the design registration number 857638. The knives have silver handles and are engraved “Cooper Bros & Sons stainless steel Sheffield England” to the stainless steel blades and the service is contained within its original wooden box. The label of the original retailer - Nathan & Co.(Birmingham) Ltd. - is still in place.

All the pieces in this service are original to the set and have a good solid feeling of high quality, making it a good, straight service that is ready to be used.

This canteen is presented within a good quality wooden box and the key for locking is still present. There are some very minor scratches to the top of the box, but otherwise this is a beautifully presented service with very little use to the cutlery.

As with all the canteens available from our web-site, we are happy to send a sample place setting for approval, on receipt of a fully refundable surety payment, prior to purchasing this canteen.
