The Service

We are pleased to be offering a straight 12 place settings Edwardian period silver cutlery service in Old English Pattern with all pieces made by the best flatware makers of the early 20th century.

With its plain and stylish appearance, this is a beautifully elegant service that includes traditional oval bowled table spoons (useful either for soup or as serving spoons) and a good selection of large serving pieces: a large and satisfyingly hefty soup ladle, a pair of 12” long basting spoons that are also ideal for serving and a pair of useful sauce ladles.

Each piece in this service is engraved to the front terminal with a crest featuring a dagger piercing a laurel wreath. We can supply complementing knives (without crest) on request.

Old English Pattern

Old English Pattern was first introduced circa 1770 and has always been a very favoured pattern due to its elegant and simple form. It has been produced continually to the present day with a resurgence of popularity in the early 20th Century.

The Maker

Jackson & Fullerton were one of the premier specialist silver flatware makers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and any silver flatware bearing their mark will be of the finest quality.  The company traded under the name of Josiah Williams & Co. (the original founder) and was prolific in its output and always produced the best quality silver flatware available. The spoons, servers and forks were all hand forged to ensure balance and durability, and were made from a good gauge of silver to give them a nice hefty weight in the hand
