The glint of fine silver on the table is part of the pleasure of dining. Those who give a canteen of English silver cutlery to newlyweds, or to themselves, are giving a pleasure which will be savoured daily, and last a lifetime. Arthur Price of England, holders of the Queen’s Royal Warrant for cutlery, are craftsman makers of cutlery for the world—including The Queen and ‘The Queens’, the ocean liners. They made the cutlery which went down with the Titanic—a pattern they still make today.
This is done by combining traditional skills, uncompromising quality and the latest manufacturing technology—not to mention over 100 years of expertise. ‘It goes hand in hand with a family tradition that prizes quality design and craftsmanship above all else. And this will always endure,’ says Simon Price.
Arthur Price are passionate about combining traditional skills, uncompromising quality and the latest manufacturing technology. Since 1902, and now five Price family generations later, they still insist on handcrafting each piece in Sheffield—and this Sovereign Silver Plated 60-Piece Canteen is the finest, traditional in craftsmanship, hand-plated with pure silver to exacting standards in Sheffield—and contemporary in that knives have hollow handles and carbon steel blades, and all are dishwasher safe. It will last a lifetime, and be handed down as an heirloom for generations to come.
Arthur Price’s beautiful Sovereign 60-piece cutlery set, here in the Bead design, epitomises the best in English craftsmanship and design with perfect poise, balance and weight. The Bead pattern was originally inspired by Huguenot silversmiths to represent pearls for an elegant, understated setting. All other patterns can be ordered: King’s, Rattail, Old English, Dubarry, Ritz, Grecian, Royal Pearl, Baguette, Britannia and more. The set arrives in its smart wooden purpose-made canteen and comprises eight table knives, eight table forks, eight soup spoons, eight dessert knives, eight dessert forks, eight dessert spoons, eight tea spoons and four table spoons. Larger sets are available. All have a lifetime guarantee.
