This is the most iconic design of the 60's/70's from Gerald Benney. This set was beautifully made in Sheffield, so is from one of the original generations of this pattern, and nearly 50 years old.
Although it has been used, it looks like not very often. The two-part knives are especially good, with the handle to blade joints in very tight condition, unlike some I have seen.
Photo 4 shows the place setting and one serving spoon, and particularly shows the 'bark' pattern on the handles. (Please note there is a fruit spoon in the photo, but none are included with this set.)The canteen interior is showing its age, but the wood veneer exterior looks almost like new, as if it was protected most of its life.
It would have originally been a 44 piece set, but, as there is plenty of room, I have added the pair of salad servers to make it 46 pieces.
I am asking £120 ono for this lovely set. Buyer collects, or it can be sent by parcel2go carrier at cost.
