19th century English very attractive petal carved ivory and engraved silverplate dessert service canteen for 12 people in the original fitted box.
19th century lovely Victorian silver plate and carved ivory dessert canteen in the original mahogany fitted case.
The service comprises 24 pieces (12 knives and 12 forks) for 12 people in two divided trays within the original mahogany fitted case. The handles are a creamy coloured genuine period ivory carved all around in a beautiful flower petal form with a similarly designed petal silver plate ferrule. The blades and tines are engraved on both sides with a leafy pattern, so that no matter which way the cutlery is laid, the carvings and engravings are visible.
Size-fork is 7 inches long by 5/8 inches wide; knife is 8.5 inches long by .75 inches wide. Case overall is 11 3/8 inches long by 9 7/8 inches wide by 2.75 inches high.
Weight-2.1 kilos.
Several handles have very thin age related stable hairlines, and some of the creamy ivory has some darker coloured areas. The case has slight warping to one top corner. The silver plate is in very good unworn condition.
The quality of this set would have made it quite expensive at the original time of purchase.
This is a lovely set in very good condition overall, with well fixed ivory handles having a lovely patina, and great silver plate double struck engraved knife blades and forks. It would make a fine addition to the table to use for dessert, cheese or fruit.
An unusually elegant design.

19th century English Victorian framed handwritten indenture made in 1873 in Dorking, Surrey.
Written in 1873, this is a very interesting large English handwritten indenture, made in Dorking, Surrey, and later mounted framed and glazed.
Historically, an indenture is a written legal contract between parties often dealing with land transactions, indentured labour, and apprenticeships. It was written in duplicate on the same sheet, with the two parts separated by cutting a jagged toothed line between the two, so that the two parts could later be refitted to confirm the authenticity of the document. Hence the term, "indenture." Each party of the deed would retain one part.
Handwritten in brown ink on vellum, this indenture deals with a land transaction between John Truelove and John Johnson, regarding a parcel of land in Wescott, part of Dorking in Surrey.
It bears a plot plan of the land, as well as the revenue and tax stamps, signatures and wax seals.
Professionally framed and mounted in a wood and gesso black and gilt frame, this is both an interesting piece of history, and a very decorative piece for the wall of any room.
Size-33 inches long by 27.5 inches high.
Another indenture also mentioning John Johnson, mounted and framed in a matching frame, is also available.
In very good condition.
