Servizio di posate di Sheffield per 6 persone, Old English Bright Cut, 1870 e 1911 – Victorian Silver Plate Dinner Set of Cutlery for 6 Old English Bright Cut Pattern 1870 & 1911 – € 330

Un interessante servizio comprendente 6 forchette, 6 cucchiai e 6 coltelli, realizzato da Elkington & Co nel 1870, con tre forchette sostituite del 1911. Di grande misura queste posate sono in condizioni molto buone. Su tutte è presente lo stesso monogramma, anche se piccole differenze nel carattere si notano in alcuni pezzi.

An interesting set consisting in six large dinner forks, six large table spoons and six large dinner knives, by Elkington & Co with registration diamond mark for 11 March 1868. Beautiful Old English Bright Cut Pattern.

The six spoons, in excellent condition, have all the same marks (registration diamond, E & Co, “H” date letter used by Elkington on electroplate, and E&Co in a shield with the Crown).

They are 22 cm long , 5 cm wide and weigh approx 91 grams each. They are monogrammed all the same.

The six forks, in very good condition with some scathes on reverse of tips of the prongs, have different marks, being three of them marked as the spoons above, and the other three marked Elkington Plate, with date letter “Z” used by the firm on electroplate for year 1911, and E&Co in a shield without the Crown (in 1898 the “crown” was deleted when the Parliament forbade its use on silver plate wares to prevent abuses and misunderstandings with the “crown” symbol of the Sheffield Assay Office, reserved to hallmarking sterling silver items). The same monogram is made in slightly different fonts on the two series.

Each fork is 21 cm long and 3 cm wide, and weighs approx 84 grams.

The six knives have the same blades marked Elkington & Co Silvermiths & Cutlers; anyway, as for the forks, the same monogram is  slightly different in font. The blades are not stainless, and have some tarnish (not severe) and are made before 1915. The handles are in excellent condition.

Each knife is 26.5 cm long, 2.5 cm wide and weighs approx 88 grams.
