Add These Stunning Antique Cutlery Sets to Your Next Dining Experience
Antique cutlery canteens make an excellent addition to any dining experience, offering elegance and sophistication. At Regent Antiques, we offer only the very best examples.
A full set of antique cutlery can be quite extensive. It might typically include knives, fish knives, forks, fish forks, various spoons, dessert forks and more. Depending on how many settings the canteen of cutlery is designed for, a canteen can contain many items of cutlery and completeness is sometimes an issue. Over time, some items become lost, damaged or just plain old worn out, but an antique canteen of cutlery that has been properly looked after can be much sought after and a complete set with no items missing can be a relatively rare find.
At Regent Antiques, we usually have such sets in our inventory. Today we will show you two very fine examples that we are pleased to offer.
