60 piece Fiddle Pattern Canteen, London 1829-44 by William Eaton

 

The Service

We are pleased to be offering the opportunity to buy a top quality, silver 12 place settings canteen in Fiddle Pattern with all the spoons and forks made by the same maker and every item being in excellent polished condition with no engravings.

 

The service provides for the five standard pieces per 12 place settings.

 

All the spoons and forks were hand wrought in London and made by the premier flatware specialist William Eaton between 1829 and 1844. The soup spoons are in the standard oval bowled form of the 19th century where soup was supped from the side of the bowl – these table spoons are also useful for serving purposes. The teaspoons are 5.75” long and can also have a dual purpose for use with certain desserts (e.g. mousse and creme brulee).

 

The service could be enhanced by adding extra place settings or serving pieces if desired – details available on request. We can also supply silver handled knives if required too.

 

Fiddle Pattern

Fiddle Pattern was the dominant flatware pattern of 19th Century Britain. It was by far the most popular pattern from 1810 until 1880. Production was largely discontinued in 1914, as the original dies for hand wrought fiddle pattern were destroyed during the First World War. As the pattern has rarely been made since, the design is distinctively 19th Century and is extremely popular today for people wishing to have antique cutlery.
