66-Piece Silver-gilt Canteen for 8 people in Gadroon Pattern, Sheffield 1968-70 by James Dixon & Sons

 

The Service

We are pleased to be offering a silver-gilt cutlery service in one of James Dixon & Sons’ signature designs – Gadroon Pattern. The service provides for eight pieces per 8 place settings with 2 table spoons for serving purposes.

 

Hallmarked silver services with an all over gilding are very uncommon, which makes this gold plated service quite special. The fish eaters make a welcome addition and the table and dessert knives are fitted with top quality Sheffield made stainless steel blades. It just exudes opulence and high quality throughout.

All the pieces are fully hallmarked for Sheffield 1968/70 by James Dixon & Sons and benefit from having no personalised engravings to them.
