This complete and monumental 639-piece Tiffany & Co. silver flatware set for 18 is crafted in the outstanding English Kingpattern and includes a full array of place and serving pieces, including rarities such as a cheese scoop and claret spoon/martini mixer, each one adorned with this majestic motif. Tiffany flatware services were prized possessions in the great houses at the turn of the century so to find such a magnificent complete set is a true treasure.

Fashioned to reflect the elaborate entertaining styles of the Gilded Age, the English King pattern was introduced by Tiffany in 1885. Considered one of the most elegant patterns ever produced, the shell design is subtle in its differences from its English counterpart, yet retains the key design elements that endeared it from the beginning. The result is a classic design transformed by Tiffany's gift for innovation, which consequently received an exclusive patent. Though several versions of this pattern have been made in electroplate by virtually every major silverware manufacturer in the United States, Tiffany's version was the only one to be crafted in sterling silver. English King has remained one of Tiffany's most popular patterns and enjoys a great following both in the United States and abroad. 

Each piece is marked "TIFFANY & CO/STERLING/PAT. 1885/M"
