Royal Appointment Set 24 Fish Knives & Fish Forks


A very good set of 24 vintage fish knives and fish forks, consisting of 12 fish knives and 12 fish forks with silver plated blades and tines, in their original case, and all in immaculate condition. Each piece is marked "Elkington & Co Ltd", and the box label reads "By Appointment To Her Majesty The Queen Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Elkington & Co Ltd England".

A plate of good food is lost without a good knife and fork. Well-proportioned, well-balanced and beautifully designed flatware is a joy to use and is the making of a good meal, and this set would be ideal if you are serving salmon this Christmas. Our vintage ‘bone-handled’ fish knives and fish forks are both good-looking and functional, and their renewed popularity make them a stylish addition on today’s table. Our set has ivorine handles fashioned from xylonite, with silver plated tines and blades. This elegant style of flatware was made from 1920 through to the 1950s in Sheffield England, which was then the heart of the world’s cutlery industry.
