Offered is a fabulous estate found antique English 1840's period heavy sterling silver flatware service for about 10 with 7 serving pieces in the classic'Queens' variant of Kings pattern, mainly by Joseph & Adey Savory of London, circa 1840's with a few additions by other London makers of the period. The pattern is double stuck (on both sides) and quite crisp. Very heavy weight, unlike most American flatware.

Filled handled dessert/fruit knives & forks have sterling hallmarked handles and played blades/tines - made in Sheffield by RS also circa 1840's.
