Build your Canteen – Old English Pattern (6 to 24 place settings) - Hallmarks: London 1840 – 1882 by George Adams – Ref. No.: GAOE/1000

The Service

This service can be tailored made to suit your own requirements. We can supply the exact number of place setting required from 6 to 24 or more subject to current stock levels. We can also change the structure of the service, so that if more of one particular item is required or none of another, then we can work out a price accordingly.

THE PRICE OF £290 WILL BUY ONE PLACE SETTING consisting of a table spoon, table fork, dessert spoon, dessert fork and teaspoon. A full 60 piece canteen with 12 place settings will cost £290 x 12 = £3480. You can work out the price of a suitable service for your needs using the same principle. Please contact us for further details.

Knives can be supplied as an optional extra either as 20th century “bone” handled or new silver handled Old English Pattern.

All the spoons and forks were hand wrought in London during the Victorian period by the most important company of silver flatware makers of the period – Chawner & Company – under the leadership of George W Adams (working period 1840 to 1882). All pieces bear his “GA” makers mark.

All pieces are supplied in excellent polished condition with no personalised engravings to them.
