In all, 242 pieces in a fitted four-drawer wooden sideboard.  [Please note that some of the pieces were obviously purchased by the original owner at a later date, and they are not fitted into the drawers.  They lay loose in a large empty area of the bottom drawer.]

This is a quite extraordinary service which would delight any lover of the Art Deco period.  As it is silver-plate, not sterling silver, we cannot date it, but assume it was made during the late 1930s -- a time when Walker and Hall was one of the largest silversmiths in the world.  The sideboard is a very practical size and shape. The silver-plated pieces are in excellent condition, with hardly any signs of use. The wood is in very good condition, with only a little surface scratching.

This beautiful silver-plated flatware service in Art Deco 'Nile' pattern was made c1938 by Walker and Hall of Sheffield.

Please note this service is made of silver-plate and not sterling silver.
