This is a lovely quality serving set that was made in the early part of the 20th Century. I think that the symbol on the Walker and Hall Mark - dates the set to 1905 - 1910.
It is a fine serving set - probably for serving fish. It consists of a large serving spoon and a large slice or lifter. There is no loss of any plate to either - and it looks as if they have hardly been used. Each piece is matched and they are substantial items with a good weight to them - as you might expect from antique Walker and Hall flatware. The handles are fluted - and each has a lozenge on them - where you would add your monogram. Each item here has not had any engraving on this lozenge.
The fitted case is in lovely condition and is original to the contents. It measures 13 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches. It is hard and covered in black leather with a decorative gold border on the outer lid. Inside the lid is lined with a ruffled wine-coloured silk - printed in gold with Walker & Hall / Sheffield. The base of the case is a claret velvet - all nice and clean with no fading. There is a twisted silk cord all around the velvet base section as a decoration. The case is hinded with a finger button to the front.
The fork measures 9 inches in length - the width of the prong section is 2 1/4 inches. The slice measures just over 12 inches. It is 2 inches wide at the widest point.
A really beautiful set for serving at more formal dining occasions. Both pieces are clearly marked with the old Walker and Hall Logo and date symbol. The sheer quality and fabulous antique condition is reflected in my asking price.
