Boxed 67 piece SILVER HANOVERIAN RATTAIL SILVER CANTEEN CUTLERY,

Sheffield 1978 by Lambert & Blaber Ltd

 

The Service

We are pleased to be offering a great opportunity to own a comprehensive boxed silver canteen of cutlery in the very popular Hanoverian Rattail.

This is a straight (same date & maker) service that provides for ten pieces per 6 place settings with additional serving spoons and carvers. All pieces are appropriately hallmarked for Sheffield 1978 by Lambert & Blaber Ltd and the knives have this company name also engraved to the blades. All pieces benefit from being in excellent condition with no personalised engravings.

 

Hanoverian Rattail Pattern

Hanoverian Rattail was first in fashion between 1710 and 1730 and has been reproduced since the 1880’s. It was the first flatware pattern in the UK to be used for complete canteens. Due to its elegant lines and proportions it has continued to enjoy great popularity and is probably the most sought after traditional pattern. The front of each piece has a distinctive central ridge, whilst the spoons have the trademark rattail extension to the handle on the reverse side of the bowl.
