This wonderful set has been made to the highest standard, as one would expect from George Adams, and is still in excellent condition. The silver cutlery ranges in date from 1842-1878 and the new silver handled knives with stainless steel blades have been designed to sit well with the rest of the fiddle pattern cutlery. The mahogany canteen box has been re-lined and re-fitted to make it look more presentable and the fiddle pattern cutlery sits perfectly within the box. There are 87 pieces in total and this set would grace any dining table. It looks eye catching and would be a pleasure to use .
