WHAT A LOVELY MODERN ELIZABETH II SILVER CANTEEN OF CUTLERY.

IT IS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND OF EXTENSIVE SIZE.

Here we have a quite exceptional and quite lovely 12 place setting of solid silver cutlery of quite superb gauge and weight.Hallmarks are deep and clear.

This is a a truly wonderful lot well worth owning and comprises 107 pieces in all.

The condition is terrific and it has been used seldom.

All are assayed in Sheffield and dated 1975 and they have a maker's mark for manufacturers MDQ.The cutlery knives are by MDQ also and have flawless stainless steel blades.

This is a lovely modern lot and a must have.

A really delightful set!

It comes in its plush two tiered canteen box to store the cutlery pieces in.

The canteen comprises as follows:

12 dessert forks-7.125 inches in length-546 grams combined

12 dinner forks-8.25 inches in length-885 grams combined

12 dessert spoons-7 inches in length-622 grams combined

12 teaspoons-5.25 inches in length-234 grams combined

The weighable silver of the above 80 items is 3865 grams (124.28 troy ounces).

In addition there are with stainless steel blades:

12 fully hallmarked hard soldered dessert knives-8.375 inches in length-49 grams each.

12 fully hallmarked hard soldered dinner knives-9.5 inches in length-60 grams each .


3 piece accessories set

I estimate their actual silver weight at another 15 ounces.

These lovely pieces are of exceptional quality and each is a most delightful piece of hefty table silver.

Pattern is most pleasing on the eye and is the traditional OLD ENGLISH SHELL SINGLE STRUCK.

Each piece is unengraved.

Would be ideal as a special present.
