Each item that leaves our factory is the result of years of experience in the manufacturer of silverware. All of our pieces are made from the finest materials, assembled, polished and plated by our skilled craftsmen. All of the joints and seems on our tea and coffee services are hard soldered to ensure strength and durability and all our products have a heavy deposit of silver to make sure it lasts for many years to come. There are now only a few companies left with the skill and expertise to manufacture silver plated flatware and hollow ware to the standards demanded by top hotels and restaurants worldwide. We are happy to say that Gainsborough is one of those select few. Over many years of hard use items become damaged, dented or discoloured but, in the hands of our skilled workforce, they are repaired, re-polished and re-silvered to look as good as new, at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
