Old English PatternOld English Pattern

Following on from Hanoverian without rat-tail came Plain Old English which was very popular from 1760 to 1800. The forks were now four pronged and the end of the spoon turned down instead of up so that they could be crested or initialled on the front. This remains one of the most popular patterns as it can be used equally well in a modern or antique setting.

Fiddle Pattern

RattailRattail

This pattern was originally produced from 1710 until 1730 and is also known as Hanoverian with rat-tail. The forks had three prongs and spoon bowls were more oval than egg shaped but when the pattern was revived in the late nineteenth century four prong forks were more common.
