#23824 - Victorian Sterling Flatware set for Twelve by George Adams
Price: $14,500.00

Circa 1869, Sterling, by George Adams, London, England. This fabulous complete set for twelve by George Adams, renowned London Silversmith, is in the classic fiddle and thread pattern. Heavy and well-made, they bear a wonderful cow over crown armorial, probably denoting a set from a royal’s county home. Very good condition.

Noted: The matching sterling-handled knives are later, as sets of this period rarely had matching knives or they rarely survived. Also, one of the small forks has a slightly different armorial …the cow has wings.
