Butler Sheba 1960s Mid-Century Retro Sheffield Cutlery - 6 Settings, 56 Pieces. A stylish UK-made cutlery set dating from the mid to late 1960s. It clearly draws inspiration from 1960s Scandinavian design and has Sheffield steel quality. It comprises the standard 7 pieces for 6 place settings (42 pieces) plus an additional set of fish knives & forks (12 pieces - left hand side of first photograph), plus two serving spoons (so, 56 pieces in total).Im not sure what wood was used for the handles (some sort of hardwood such as teak probably). Please remember that the handles are natural and there will be slight colour variation. I havent noticed any splits on the handles. The first photo shows one complete place setting (and there are 6 complete settings in total - no missing pieces). The second photo shows the two serving spoons. The set is in very nice condition with only minor evidence of use (it appears that this set was kept for special occasions). Please note that the lining to the canteen is degrading to the point that the slots for the knives leave a sticky residue on the knives, so it is probably best to store the knives elsewhere.
The set is clearly not dishwasher safe and should only be hand washed. _gsrx_vers_837 GS 7.0.15 (837).
