The reign of Queen Victoria, also known as “Victorian Era”, is one of the longest periods of peace and prosperity in Britain’s history, spanning from 1837 to 1901. The prolonged, steady and widespread wealth, due to the political, economic, industrial and colonial consolidation of the British Empire, reflected on many of the contemporary aspects of social life such as literature, art, architecture, fashion, jewellery and silverware.

Silver was highly valued during this period and large silver table services became an essential requirement for aristocratic and emerging middle-class families.
