Details

117 piece Queen's Pattern Canteen of Silver Cutlery, London and Sheffield 1964-66 by Garrard & Company Ltd 

 

This is a fantastic, wide ranging silver canteen in the highly sought after Queen’s Pattern. The service provides for thirteen pieces per 8 place settings with a handy range of serving items and was made by the prestigious London retailers, Garrard & Company Limited. 

All the spoons and forks were hand-wrought in the traditional fashion of the London silversmiths and have double-struck decoration in high relief. Each piece bears a London hallmark with the much prized Garrard & Company Limited maker’s mark. The table and dessert knives are hallmarked in Sheffield and fitted with stainless steel blades with the Garrards name engraved to them. 

 A major bonus of this service is something for every occasion, so whether you are planning to start dinner with soup or fish, the requisite piece is available. Likewise, for dessert and after dinner tea/coffee, then plenty of options remain available. 

The fruit knives (with silver blades) and forks are ideal for strawberries, but of course can be used with other desserts too and so free up the dessert knives with stainless steel blades for use as a side or cheese knife. The egg spoons are perfect for breakfast time, but can also double up as spoons for savouring desserts such as mousse, yoghurt and crème brulee. 

There is a good selection of serving items including four multi-functional serving spoons, a handsome pair of fish servers and a five piece carving set comprising, a meat knife and fork, a poultry knife and fork and a sharpening steel.

 

Queen's Pattern

Queen’s Pattern was first in fashion in the 1820’s and has similarities in shape to King’s Pattern but has more ornate decoration and an anthemion motif to the reverse of the bowls. It was named in honour of Queen Caroline of Brunswick (King George IV’s wife). The highly ornate decoration found on Queen’s Pattern demands that each piece is made with a thick gauge of silver and thus makes it one of the most prestigious of all flatware patterns.
