Old English Sheffield Steel Spoon (Pre-order)
An heirloom-quality, dishwasher-safe dessert or eating spoon, in this traditional Old English style, which originated in the 1760s during the reign of George III, and whose appeal lies in its simplicity, graceful line and simple decorative pip. This simple design forms the basis for many more decorative versions, but this is the original. Made in Sheffield — home to the Cutlers' Hall and world-renowned centre of steel and British knife making since at least the 13th century, and hopefully for many years to come. Produced by Tricketts at the White Rose Works on Eyre Lane right in the centre of the city amidst a small cluster of historic light-industrial units now surrounded by ever encroaching retail, university, and speculative residential developments. Formed from martensitic stainless steel, with a beautiful brushed 'Sateen' finish. Please note that this is a pre-order item. Delivery times will vary but may take up to 8 weeks. Measures 18.9 x 4.5cm.
