STUNNING ANTIQUE 24 PIECE SILVER CLOSE PLATE & WHALEBONE DESSERT CUTLERY CANTEEN

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING, ANTIQUE 24 PIECE CLOSE PLATED CANTEEN OF DESSERT CUTLERY, OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY.

THIS TRUELY IS A WONDERFUL, ANTIQUE SET AND IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION TOO.

MADE BY THE FAMOUS ' THOMAS HARWOOD ' OF BIRMINGHAM, AND FEATURING VERY EARLY MARKS BY HIM, CIRCA 1850. BEFORE THE ADDITION OF AN 'S' TO HIS MAKERS MARK FOR 'SONS'.

THERE ARE 24 PIECES IN THIS SIMPLY SUPERB VICTORIAN DESSERT CANTEEN, WITH 12 X DESSERT KNIVES & 12 X DESSERT FORKS, COMPLETE & ALL BY THE SAME MAKER.

EACH PIECE OF CUTLERY IS ' CLOSE PLATED ' WHICH IS AN AGE OLD NAME FOR COVERING A BASE METAL WITH SOLID SILVER, AND WAS AROUND LONG BEFORE THE DAYS OF 'ELECTRO PLATE'.

THESE ARE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY, AND ALL CLOSE PLATED AREAS ARE SUPERB. COVERED WITH A VERY GOOD GAUGE OF SOLID SILVER.

EACH ITEM OF CUTLERY IS FITTED WITH A WONDERFUL, BRIGHT WHALEBONE OR 1VORY? HANDLE. WITH SUPERB, CARVED 'TEAR DROP' SHAPED ENDS.

WHICHEVER NATURAL MATERIAL HAS BEEN USED IT IS OF A MUCH LIGHTER SHADE THAN THE TYPICAL COW BONE, AND THESE ARE TRUELY MAGNIFICENT.

FITTED INTO A FABULOUS, MAHOGONY CASE IN LOVELY CONDITION. COMPLETE WITH BOTH UPPER REMOVEABLE & LOWER CUTLERY TRAYS, AND HAVING BRASS HINGES & FITTINGS. SADLY NO KEY & A SLIGHT 'SMILE' TO THE FRONT LIP OF CASE WHERE IT HAS PROBABLY BEEN NEAR HEAT, BUT STILL LOOKS WONDERFUL.

CONDITION :

IT IS AN EXCELLENT QUALITY SET, WITH A SUPERB LEVEL OF SILVERING & BEAUTIFUL HANDLES.

WITH ONLY THE LIGHTEST OF WEAR / MARKS FROM AGE & USE, IT REALLY IS A TOP SET, BY A SUPERIOR MAKER.

MOST HANDLES HAVE VERY FINE 'HAIRLINE' SPLITS, BUT NONE ARE LOOSE, ALL ARE VERY FIRM & THE SPLITS ARE VERY MINIMAL.

THE MAHOGONY CASE, AS MENTIONED ABOVE IS SUPERB. SLIGHT 'SMILE' TO FRONT AS CAN BE SEEN IN PICTURES & NO KEY. BUT EXCELLENT CONDITION.

AN IMPRESSIVE CANTEEN & A REALLY USEABLE, ANTIQUE SETTING FOR 12.
