A set of large, heavyweight dinner size silverplate flatware for 10 is signed "Atkin Bros Ltd., England." The classic pattern is called "King"s" and also "Fiddle, Thread and Shell" and includes a walnut chest. An interesting price quote from Harrod's in 1988 that came with this set is shown in photos.
The set includes 10 each of 10" dinner knives with stainless steel blades, 8 1/2" dinner forks, 7" salad forks and 7 1/2" large dessert, soup or pasta spoons, for a total of 40 pieces. There is just enough wear to the silver for a "butler's" hand rubbed finish.
The chest has a few mars and is lined with Pacific silver cloth.
Size is 18" x 11 1/2" and 4" tall.
Please view 30 photos at full screen size for best detail.
