This silver fiddle and thread cutlery set would be perfect to use and would grace any dining table. The fiddle and thread pattern tends to feel heavier in the hand than the plainer fiddle style and adds a little more detail. It sits neatly in a fitted mahogany canteen box which has been re-lined to make it look more presentable. The set weighs 131.7 troy ounces (4,097 grams) without the knives and there are 87 pieces in total. The replacement silver handled knives are dated for 1994 and match the cutlery perfectly.

Complimentary postage is included within the price.
