Old English - Silver Plated Cutlery
The Old English cutlery pattern was first seen in England in the 1760’s, during the reign of George III. The design was originally favoured by high society and is still considered one of the most famous Parish cutlery patterns. The appeal was certainly in the fact that the cutlery was easier to hold than some of the earlier patterns, which were beautiful but slightly impractical!
Old English provides an elegant silhouette which inspired our modern cutlery pattern Vision. Old English is stunningly simple yet perfect for any modern or traditional setting. The pattern is incredibly versatile in that it would suit pretty much any formal or informal setting.
How do we create this stunning cutlery? Each piece of EPNS (electro plated nickel 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 plated 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.
