"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."
- George Washington

We are delighted to present a collection of authentic vintage WWII-era three piece place settings, composed of cutlery made exclusively for use by the U.S. Navy. In the classic King's pattern that was used for the U.S. Navy's formal silverware, each piece is stamped with USN or the fouled anchor.

Commissioned by the U.S. Navy for use by the Officer Corps, naval silverplate flatware was used extensively from the late 1800s through the mid-1900s in officer wardrooms and mess halls. This silverware was produced around World War II and in all likelihood saw some action during that time - perhaps on an aircraft carrier, battleship, cruiser, destroyer, or submarine.

With their timeless style and gleaming historic provenance, each of these rare place settings is sure to be a storied and beloved addition to your table.

Strictly limited quantities and subject to prior sale (at time of listing, 11 three-piece place settings are available). In good vintage condition with signs of age and use as expected for a life well-lived on the seven seas! Knife: 9.25", Fork: 8", Spoon: 6"

Sailing the high seas is no easy feat; it’s a daring and treacherous journey where the ocean’s unpredictable nature leaves little room for error. The stakes are even higher when going to war aboard naval vessels, whether they be grand battleships or nimble destroyers.

To care for their sailors at sea while also supporting the United States silver industry during lean times between the two world wars, the U.S. Navy commissioned silverplate flatware in the grand King's pattern. Most of the Naval silverware found today was produced for use aboard naval vessels and were taken home by sailors after their ships were decommissioned.
