English Reed & Ribbon - Sterling Silver Cutlery
A classic Victorian pattern, English Reed and Ribbon was first introduced at the height of Queen Victoria’s reign in 1850. English Reed and Ribbon was considered absolute sophistication in Victorian England and is thought to have graced the table at Buckingham Palace during visits from foreign dignitaries and even fellow Royals.
This intricate pattern has a fine thread edging with small pretty ‘ribbon’ bows at regular intervals and a larger bow at the base of the handle. It suits absolutely any aesthetic and any occasion – formal or casual!
How do we create this stunning cutlery? Each piece of silver cutlery is hand crafted in our factory in Sheffield by Carrs very own master silversmiths.
Knife blades are made from specially hardened stainless steel which gives a perfectly sharp cutting edge. This means that blades won’t dull as quickly and there is less need for sharpening or refurbishment (both of which we can complete for you at our Sheffield factory.)
Please bear in mind that each set of silver cutlery is made to order. Once you place your order, we will begin the production process and will be in touch to let you know an estimated delivery date – this could take up to eight weeks.
