Antique Sterling Silver Canteen of Cutlery for Twelve Persons

About

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique English sterling silver Hanoverian Rat Tail pattern flatware service for twelve persons - boxed; an addition to our canteen of cutlery collection. The pieces of this impressive, antique sterling silver canteen of cutlery for twelve persons have been crafted in the Hanoverian Rat Tail pattern. Each spoon and fork features a pip to the handle terminal, and the spoons feature a rat tail to the reverse of the bowls. The bowls of the egg spoons retain the original gilding. This boxed canteen of cutlery consists of 116 pieces: Basic service: 12 table knives 12 table forks 12 table spoons 12 soup spoons 12 dessert knives 12 dessert forks 12 dessert spoons 12 teaspoons 12 egg spoons Additional pieces: Soup ladle Pair of sauce ladles Large carving knife Small carving knife Large carving fork Small carving fork Sharpening steel The fundamental components of this canteen were crafted by James Henry & Herbert Barraclough of Z Barraclough & Sons and the remaining pieces were crafted by Josiah Williams & Co, all in London between 1929 and 1940. Each silversmith produced this flatware set using an identical dye set allowing the service to have correlating proportions. This impressive set benefits from the original carving set fitted with bone handles and bearing the maker's mark 'Z. Barrackough & Sons Ltd, Silversmiths, Leeds'. The original bone handled knives bear the maker's mark 'Z. Barrackough & Sons Ltd, Silversmiths, Leeds' to the stainless steel blades; one knife have been crafted in the same size and from the same period but by a different maker. This boxed canteen of cutlery can be purchased with plain sterling silver handled Hanoverian pattern knives and supplied in felt cutlery rolls if so desired. This exceptional canteen of cutlery is fitted to the original and impressive oakwood three drawer canteen box which features brass drawer handles and a plain rectangular vacant cartouche to the upper surface. The hinged doors of the canteen box incorporate a mahogany panel to the center and is fitted with a button style handle and brass escutcheon. The interior of the box bears the retailer's mark 'Z. Barrackough & Sons Ltd, Silversmiths, Leeds'. This canteen of cutlery is an exceptional example, as to be expected from such London made flatware; locating an antique service fitted to the original box is becoming increasingly difficult. Condition This boxed canteen of cutlery is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition. The oakwood box is in presentation condition. There is some discoloration to the original bone handled knives, in keeping with age. Full hallmarks struck to the reverse surface of each piece are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine and impressive canteen.
