This exceptional sterling silver English cutlery set is fitted to the original oak wood lift up lid canteen box with lift out tray; due to the loss of the 6 dessert knives and sifter ladle, the box has vacant and versatile storage compartments.
The box features a brass cartouche to the upper surface ornamented with the initials 'RLM' below a coronet.
* "Straight" means all the pieces are made by the same maker in the same year.
This antique Kings pattern canteen of cutlery is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.
The King's pattern ornamentation is very sharp.
The original presentation box has been professionally polished by a cabinet maker; the lid to the box is very slightly warped and does not close in position.
Full hallmarks struck to the reverse of each piece are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptiona gauge of silver.
