Atkins Brothers Canteen


#1

Hello. I inherited a canteen about 20 years ago and i;m considering selling it. Could anyone help me to value it. Each knife has “Atkins Brothers sheffield” engraved on it and next to that is a symbol of a hand holding either a flower or a 3 feathers. The top section houses 8 fish knives and 8 forks as well as large fish carvers.The next section has 8 starter forks and 6 starter knives, 7 main course forks and 6 main course knives, The drawer beneath has 4 serving spoons, 8 soup spoons, 2 soup servers and 2 teaspoons. Is it worth me delving any further into its value? The canteen itself is a large wooden box, in a dark wood. I am sure it is silver plated, as it is rather tarnished at the moment.
Thanks

Yes, it does sound like plate. I’m afraid that old, incomplete sets of silverplate flatware are of virtually no value.
