Offered for sale is a lovely set of 19th Century, silver plate fish servers by Martin Hall & Co of Sheffield.
Martin Hall & Co was one of the best known British manufacturers and participated to many international exhibitions including the Crystal Palace 1851 Great Exhibition. They had also a line of production in electroplate and in a patented white metal called "Martinoid".
The blade and fork are richly engraved with scrolls, foliage and flowers ,the handles are embossed with scrolls each bearing empty cartouche. I believe it to be a pattern entitled "Venetian" but can't say for certain. The presence of the "crown" on the hallmark indicates manufacture being prior to 1895.
The knife length is 300mm the fork 230mm.
Excellent condition, no chips, cracks or signs of restoration
