84 Piece SILVER FIDDLE PATTERN CANTEEN CUTLERY, London 1830/40's by mixed makers. Fiddle Pattern (12 place settings).London 1830/40's by mixed makers with soup spoons and knives from the late 20th century (details of all hallmarks shown below). 3100 grams (100 troy ounces) + 24 knives with stainless steel blades.
We are pleased to be offering an excellent 12 place settings silver canteen in Fiddle Pattern based around mid-19. Century pieces with the bonus of later round bowled soup spoons and silver handled knives. The service provides for seven pieces per 12 place settings with servers as an optional extra. All the spoons and forks were made in London and benefit from having no personalised engravings to them. Each component is in a long run of 11 or 12 and so ensuring that place settings are an identical match.
The single added dessert fork and table fork are near identical matches to the remainder. All pieces are in superb polished condition. The modern round-bowled soup spoon was not introduced until the early 20. Century, by which time fiddle pattern was very limited in production and thereby making the round bowled spoon a very rare occurrence.
This service is fortunate to have twelve modern, superbly made examples that complement the set perfectly. Knives were never produced in fiddle pattern, until more recent times. We recommend the use of the plainer handled knife as it is more comfortable to use, but can supply a new fiddle pattern knife on request. Supplied with this service are 24 top quality silver handled knives with stainless steel blades.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. This 84-piece service consists of the following.
