Rattail Sterling Silver Set

From: £399.95

This pattern of flatware is so named because its manufacture spanned most of the 18th Century, coinciding with the reigns of George I, II and III (part) of the House of Hanover dynasty.

This pattern was reproduced towards the end of the 19th century and throughout the 20th century in two distinct forms; Rat-tail and Hanoverian. Rat-tail has a pronounced ridge to the front stem (and occasionally the reverse of forks) and takes it’s inspiration from the early 18th century examples. Meanwhile Hanoverian pattern has more similarities with the late 18th century originals, i.e. a pip to the front of the stem and no rat-tail.
