Victorian Silverplate Dessert Canteen - Service For 12

Victorian Silverplate Dessert Canteen - Service For 12

$1,600.00

The Victorian era, named after England's Queen Victoria, lasted from the 1830's to the turn of the 20th century and was an era of abundance and beauty. A lovely example of the lush aesthetic of the Victorians is this elegant and decidedly exquisite Fruit and Dessert Service.  

With a magnificent nature all its own, this gorgeous Victorian Silverplate Dessert Canteen is certainly no stranger to presentation. Fitted in its original burled wood case with touches of soft blue silk and deep blue velvet, this service promises to create an atmosphere and service like no other.

The handsome lid with brass fittings opens to reveal the set's 12 dessert forks, 2 large berry serving spoons, grape shears and 2 dessert knives. The ingeniously designed front of the box rolls forward to reveal a nutcracker on each side, as well as the additional dessert knives, bringing the total number of knives to 12. Breathtakingly majestic, we couldn't possibly imagine a more spectacular service.

Graced with lovely engravings of fluttering butterflies and scrolling vines adorned with soft flourishes and bows, we have never seen such a magnificent service. We are certain this gorgeous dessert canteen is to become a most beloved addition to your tableware collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition with small areas of darkened silver on some of the knife blades. The box shows signs of age with a few cracks in the burled wood veneer. The ferrules on knives and forks are stamped with the "Victorian Registration Lozenge". Circa 1880. Box measures 12 1/2" x 9 1/2" x 10" when closed. Service measures 17 5/8" tall x 16 1/2" when opened. Dessert Forks measure 7 1/4", Dessert Knives 8 1/4", Nutcrackers 5 1/4", Berry Spoons 8 3/4", Grape Shears 7 1/8".
