63 piece Old English Pattern Canteen of Silver Cutlery, Sheffield 1999/2000 made by William Turner and retailed by Ogden of Harrogate

This is a beautifully presented, unused silver canteen of cutlery in the stylish Old English Pattern from the Sheffield Millennium Collection.

The service provides for seven pieces per 8 place settings, plus 4 serving spoons and a 3-piece carving set. All the pieces are housed in their original wooden box, although the carving set, which was bought two years later, is in its own cardboard box.

The set was made by William Turner of Sheffield and every piece in the main box is hallmarked for Sheffield 1999/2000 and includes the commemorative Millennium hallmark. The carving set was bought in 2002 and bears the commemorative Golden Jubilee hallmark. All pieces bear the “JO” sponsor’s mark for the retailer Ogden of Harrogate.

The table and dessert knives are fitted with stainless steel blades and are engraved “William Turner Master Cutlers Millennium Collection Sheffield” to the blades.

Old English Pattern
