This set has been made to a high standard, as one would expect from George Adams, and is still in excellent condition. Although the canteen box is not original to this set , it has been restored and re-fitted to house this cutlery set perfectly and it still retains all the original brass features. The cutlery ranges in dates from 1844-1875 and the new silver knives have been designed to sit well with the rest of the cutlery. This set would grace any dining table and would be perfect to use.
