Product Description

A very nice looking set by the renowned silversmiths Mappin & Webb, of 8 forks and 7 knives (1 missing), in good condition.

The fruit cutlery set is in A1 quality silver plate, and has been made for the Union – Castle Shipping Line. The knives and forks have a slightly different design and are stamped with the logo of the shipping company, as well as the maker’s marks.

Mappin and Webb have a letter dating system, but it is unclear as to how it works. However, the letter H is thought to correspond with the date of 1936.

The Union-Castle Line was a British shipping line that operated a fleet of passenger liners and cargo ships between Europe and Africa from 1900 to 1977. It was formed from the merger of the Union Line and Castle Shipping Line.
