86 piece Sandringham Pattern Canteen, Sheffield 1930/1 by E Viner
With it's Art Deco influenced streamlined appearance, Sandringham Pattern remains one of the most popular of all 20th Century patterns. It was designed by Viners circa 1930 and it's simple, yet elegant looks will complement any table service. This canteen is in the superior quality double struck version (i.e. the pattern can be seen on both sides).
Viners were a large Sheffield based out-fit founded in 1900 and were the most well-known Sheffield manufacturer from the 1930ís to 60ís. They were an innovative company producing many new and popular designs. They went out of business in 1982.
It is a "straight" canteen (i.e. all pieces were made at the same time by a single maker) Each piece is hallmarked Sheffield 1930/1 by E Viner. The knives have simulated bone handles and stainless steel blades. All the pieces are in fabulous polished condition and have not been engraved. Each piece has a good solid feel in the hand.
