Elkington Silver cutlery:- In 1238, King Henry II comanded six reputable craftsmen in the silversmith trade to control and regulate standards. This was to stop greedy and unscrupulous manufacturers defrauding the public by substituting white base metal for the prized and much sought after precious metal silver. Thus was created the British Hallmarking System which is probably the earliest recorded piece of consumer protection, and over 750 years later, is unquestionably the most enduring.

A hallmark gives the purchaser a visible guarantee of quality. Before any piece of Silver can be hallmarked, it is individually tested at the Assay Office to determine its purity, and if found to be of the required standard laid down by statute, then, and only then is it hallmarked.

Elkington's sterling silver cutlery is hallmarked at the Sheffield Assay Office. To learn more about what this means you may visit the Assay Office web site.

See our page on Silver Cutlery & Gifts for more details of the high quality available in sterling silver items for sale on this site.
