The Service

We are pleased to be offering this superb silver canteen of cutlery in Hanoverian Rattail Pattern.  This complete formal dining service provides for ten pieces per 12 place settings with additional serving spoons.


This is a straight (same date & maker) service that is presented within its original wooden box. Each piece benefits from being in excellent polished condition with no personalised engravings.


Hanoverian Rattail Pattern

Hanoverian Rattail was first in fashion between 1710 and 1730 and has been reproduced since the 1880’s. It was the first flatware pattern in the UK to be used for complete canteens. Due to its elegant lines and proportions it has continued to enjoy great popularity and is probably the most sought after traditional pattern. The front of each piece has a distinctive central ridge and there is the diagnostic rattail extension to the handle on the reverse sides.
