La Regence - Sterling Silver Cutlery
La Regence was first manufactured in France the 19th century, but was incredibly popular in Britain in the 1920’s when it became a parish pattern. After being discovered in France, La Regence was manufactured in Britain by William Turner, part of the Nickel Blanks group. Nickel Blanks became a part of the Carrs Silver family in 2009, bringing with them the original tools and dies from the very first manufacture of La Regence cutlery in 1921! Although we have created new tooling to manufacture La Regence, these tools and dies now sit proudly in Carrs archive in our factory in Sheffield.
La Regence also has a very special meaning for the Carr family as Richard and Georgina Carr chose the pattern for their wedding breakfast. The wedding took place on an outdoor terrace in Majorca - guests were surrounded by panoramic views and beautiful olive trees – perfectly accented by the flowing leaf pattern on La Regence handles!
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.)
