Sterling silver handled carving set in box, large knife and 2 pronged fork, Queens pattern, stainless steel blade, Viners, Sheffield, 1965



This is a beautifully ornate sterling silver handled carving set in its original box.
There is a large knife and fork with 2 prongs.
The pattern on the handles is the elaborate Queen's pattern - a more elaborate version of the King's pattern.
The handles are hollow.
The blade of the knife and the tines of the fork are stainless steel.
The brand is Edward Viners of Sheffield, England.
The blade of the knife is engraved with:
"By appointment to the late King George V
Viners Ltd Sheffield
Stainless Deluxe
Made in England".
Both handles are engraved with:
The crown symbol for Sheffield
The lion passant for British sterling silver
"EV" for Edward Viners
The letter "X' for the year 1965.
The box is black cardboard with ivory colored satin lining and grooves for the pieces.
The box has a sticker that says "Sterling Silver".
The 2 pieces weigh 137 grams.

The knife is 11 inches / 28 cm long.
The fork is 9.25 inches / 23.5 cm long.

The set was made in 1965.

The knife and fork are in excellent vintage condition.
The box has minor scuffing on the outside.
There are some odd reflections on the stainless steel in the photos. These can be ignored.

Returns and exchange details

If a buyer wants to seek a refund, the buyer must get in touch with me within 14 days of receiving the item.
I will refund if you change your mind about the item - the cost of the item only, not the postage costs. The item must be returned to me in the same condition it was sent.
If an item is damaged in transit to such an extent that it can't be used, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost paid by the buyer. If the item is slightly damaged, but is still usable or repairable, I will discount the price. I will require proof of damage - an emailed photo will usually suffice.
If an item is lost in transit, I will refund the cost of the item and the postage cost.
If an item with a tracking number tracks as having been delivered and you didn't receive it, you must take this up with the carrier. The carrier won't allow me to do this on your behalf.
I will refund if the item is not as described. I may ask the buyer to return the item to me. In that case, I will pay for the cost of postage both ways as well as the cost of the item. If the buyer would like to keep the item at a discounted price, I will negotiate a price with the buyer.


Please don't ask for a discount. I probably won't respond to your request.

All of the goods I sell are vintage and most will have had prior owners. For this reason, they are likely to show some signs of age or wear. This is normal and I will only mention specific issues that I think you should know before deciding to purchase.
