I am a junior silver collector, I am collecting silver cutlery for my own use. I have started with GMJ forks in the beautiful Queens pattern and I had to realize (later!) that items in this pattern are quite rare.
The next aquisition was teaspoons James Whiting in the same period. I am attaching photos for your review.
I am considering buying some silver dessert knifes and I have the following concerns:
- They are Sheffield vs London my other items
- They are having a man crest
- Not to mention different maker etc.
The other question I would be grateful for an answer is how difficult is to find spoons in this pattern, any matching maker that you recommend? What about knives?
Many thanks for your thoughts.
