Queen's Pattern

Queen’s Pattern was first in fashion in the 1820’s and was named in honour of Queen Caroline of Brunswick (King George IV’s wife). The highly ornate decoration found on Queen’s Pattern demands that each piece is made with a thick gauge of silver and thus makes it one of the most prestigious flatware patterns. 

There are several variants of the pattern, this canteen being in the most popular being with "anthemion heel". This term relates to the motif on the reverse side of the bowl and tines.
