1778 - 1780

Extremely rare 18th century feather edge and cartouche “Carrington Shield Pattern” silver service of flatware. The “Carrington Shield Pattern” is probably one of the oldest decorative patterns in existence.

18th century complete flatware services are reasonably rare, but to find a patterned one at this date – all with the same original family crest – is incredibly rare. The set also happens to be in excellent condition. This pattern is illustrated in Ian Pickford’s flatware book.

All the pieces are what is known as “bottom mark” – it is only later on in 1781 when the marks are moved up the stem, away from the bowls and tines.

All made in 1778 – 1780 in London.
