Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this wonderful solid silver cutlery set made by Sheffield silversmith Aaron Hadfield in 1849.
The set is cased in its original fitted box which features a blue velvet lining inside with a hard shell exterior.
Consisting of a knife, fork and spoon - each piece is heavily decorated with Victorian engravings of scrolls foliate motifs with a blank cartouche on each handle as such wares were usually given as christening gifts given by parents or even relatives and godparents as a token and symbolism of prosperity and wellbeing of the child.
Each piece is fully hallmarked on the knife/fork and their respective handles - one note, the spoon is marked with a different date letter "c" for 1846.
The set is a lovely addition to any collection of silverware ideal for display on a dining table or as a wonderful christening gift, with a classic traditional twist for a luxurious modern-day present.
