H45510 - Reed & Barton Bristol Grande Silverware Chest Mahogany Finish
After receiving a 120 piece Reed & Barton set for Christmas, I was anxious to get a chest to display it in. The chest is beautiful, but will not hold my set. Four of the serving utensils are too long & I have to put them in the case sideways, above the nice vertical grooved panels. I have serving for 12. The top will not close when I have 12 forks in the allotted grooves. I also have 12 steak knives with the set & although there appears to be knife grooves in the front of the top shelf, if you put your forks & spoons in the vertical grooves, the knives don't fit. A Reed & Barton box made for a Reed & Barton set, you should be made to carry a disclaimer" "This box will not hold a 12 piece set nicely in the provided slots, even though we say it will hold 250 pieces" ! Disappointed! Indicate in your product description which sets will fit, because clearly a 120 piece set should fit in a box that will hold 250 pieces.
BEAUTIFUL! STUNNING! ELEGANT! QUALITY CRAFTED!
My goodness, this chest is a beautiful work of Art. Such wonderful craftsmanship. The Mahogany color is absolutely gorgeous, its a rich dark cherry, matches my dark cherry dinning room furniture perfectly. This chest is solid wood construction, there is a nice weight to it. The hardware is stunning. I'm just thrilled I purchased this wonderful chest, its worth so much more!! My 96 piece of beautiful old Silver looks even more beautiful in this glorious chest! Thanks Reed & Barton for making gorgeous silverware chest that shows your "SUPERB CRAFTSMANSHIP!
I decided on this chest for my Reed and Barton silverware because I have one of the larger sets with many serving pieces. Everything fits very well and I am extremely pleased with how beautifully it is presented in this chest. It was packaged very well and the craftmanship and wood is just stunning....I was so happy and this is by far one of my best purchases from QVC!
