The Service

We are pleased to be offering this near mint silver canteen of cutlery in Hanoverian Rattail Pattern.  This service provides for ten pieces per 6 place settings with additional serving spoons.

This is a straight (same date & maker) service that is presented within its original Carrs of Sheffield 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, whilst the forks and spoons have the trademark rattail extension to the handle on the reverse side of the bowl.

6 Table   Forks         19.5cm

6 Fish   Knives              20.8cm
