The Service

We are pleased to be offering an immaculate, nearly new boxed silver canteen of cutlery in the very popular Hanoverian Rattail.  This beautifully presented service provides for seven pieces per 8 place settings with four serving spoons

This is a straight (same date & maker) service with all the pieces benefitting from being in excellent 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, whilst the spoons have the trademark rattail extension to the handle on the reverse side of the bowl.



This 60-piece service consists of the following:

8 Soup   Spoons (round bowls)       17.6cm

8 Dessert/Side   Knives                21.8cm

8 Table   Forks                                 19cm

8 Dessert   Spoons                       17.8cm

8 Table   Knives                               24cm

8 Teaspoons                               12.7cm

8 Dessert    Forks                             17.3cm

4 Table/serving Spoons               20.5cm

Total weight of weighable silver  2770 grams (89 troy ounces).



Excellent polished condition throughout with full length fork tines and unworn spoon bowls. Near mint condition.



This canteen is presented within its original burgundy coloured, faux crocodile leather covered box. The box is attractively presented in a compact form with the name of the makers impressed in gold to the inside cover. The knives are slotted in to a lift-out tray and the spoons and forks stacked in the lower section.


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.
