Pls see attachements. And yes I would like it valued.
The canteen serves 12. I am not quite sure how many pieces in each setting - Perhaps 5 or 6. Maybe you could see from the photo?
In terms of serving pieces, there appear to be 6 serving spoons, 2 small ladels, and one very large ladel. And carving knife and fork, with steel. The set was given to my grandparents (deceased almost 40 years ago), maybe long before they died.
It would also be helpful to know where I could sell it to achieve the price you estimate?
OK Doris. Wait to hear from you. I am UK based. It would appead you are US based. I do travel to the US with relative frequency. However, bringing something like a canteen would be difficult I imagine. If you can advise on saleable value in both countries, it would be helpful. Or if the best price is achieved in the US, advice on how to bring it there (customs etc) would be helpful.
Another even clearer photo attached.
Yes, they are stainless steel.
It's 100% Ivory and the handles are not split. The authenticity card is attached.
Not completely sure I understand what you are asking for when you say "pattern". Attached a couple of photos in case they are what you want.
And yes I would be selling the custom table at the same time.
Many thanks Dori for your comprehensive answer.
Could I ask 2 final questions -
1. what do the final single letters in the hallmark on the cutlery signify? Depnding on the cutlery item, they range from "t" (desert forks) to "P" (serving spoon) to "n"(large forks)?
2. what led you to conclude that it was 1936-37?
Many thanks again.
