8 Place Settings King’s Pattern 74 piece Canteen of Cutlery, Sheffield 1968-70 by Mappin & Webb

 

The Service

We are pleased to be offering a straight silver service in Kings Pattern with 8 place settings and each setting having 9 pieces, with the bonus of 2 additional serving pieces.

 

All the pieces were made by the top jewellery, silver and luxury goods retailer Mappin & Webb in Sheffield between 1968 and 1970 and bear appropriate hallmarks. This is a top quality service with each piece having a good hefty feel in the hand adding to the heavier than typical overall weight. The pieces are all in excellent condition and benefit from having no personalised engravings and none have been removed.

 

King's Pattern

King's Pattern is the most well-known and popular of the decorative flatware patterns. It was based on an 18th century French design and became fashionable amongst the wealthy in the early years of the 19th Century. The design encompasses a shell to both sides of the handle terminal and reverse of the bowl, scrolls down the handle shaft with a honeysuckle motif to the centre. The double-struck nature of the pattern (i.e. pattern on both sides) ensures that a good gauge of silver was used in manufacture.
