This is a beautiful example of a set of graceful and romantic vintage silver-plate flatware in the 1946 pattern that was inspired by the Garden Rose of China and is elegant enough for formal entertaining, ageless in its appeal and appropriate for both modern and heirloom table settings. Queen Bess II silver-plate flatware by Oneida Community Tudor Plate combines the sleek streamlined shape of Art Deco with the floral grace of Art Nouveau so popular from the 1920s through the 1940s.
“This popular pattern was introduced in 1946 by Oneida Community with their "Tudor Plate" trademark. An expert from one of their many ads states: Lovely Queen Bess Pattern. Extra heavy silver-plate; principal forks and spoons reinforced with additional layer of pure silver. Dramatic new Queen Bess design inspired by the Garden Rose of China.” Nancy Silver
The set consists of 66 pieces all housed in a wooden silver chest lined with felt.
Additions to the set can easily be found on the internet.
