George IV Fiddle Shell and Thread Sterling Silver Flatware Dinner Service for 12
This double-struck flatware service in fiddle, shell and thread pattern was variously made by William Eley, William Fearn and William Chawner I & II in London between 1809 and 1832, with the exception of the knives which were made in Sheffield by Aaron Hatfield (registered in Sheffield by 1812 though the assays indicate manufacture post-1840). Both the luncheon and dinner knives have old French blades in stainless steel: no bolsters, expertly replaced and in excellent condition. The knife handles are crested on one side, towards the bases, with a rampant lion.
The 89 piece service consists of twelve, seven-piece place settings: a 9″ tablespoon, 6 7/8″ dessert spoon, 5 1/2″ teaspoon, 8″ dinner fork, 6 1/2 salad/dessert fork, 8 1/2″ luncheon knife, and 10 1/4″ dinner knife, plus five serving pieces: two 12″ serving/stuffing spoons, a 7″ sauce ladle and two 4″ mustard ladles. The services comes in a high-polish mahogany, two-tiered flatware caddy with polished brass fittings. The caddy dimensions are below.
