Titanic Replica 18/10 S/S 54-piece Flatware Set byReed & Barton
Beautiful, Simple, and Understated
I love this set and will use it primarily for my "everyday" flatware. As there are no real specs available anywhere, here are the measurements: Teaspoon: 6-7/16; Soup spoon: 7-1/16; Knife: 10-5/8; Dinner fork: 8-1/16; Salad fork: 7.
Compared to my R&B "1800" pattern (an equivalent 47 piece set for 8 would be about $405 on sale), these have slightly thinner handles and are slightly lighter; but, still a good thickness and weight.
They would be the perfect gift for anyone involved in the theater: they can be a "star" at every meal. :-)
eat with history
historic, and class. a pleasure to have at any setting. conversation - unlimited.
This set is sturdy and larger than i thought the pieces would be. I am considering another set. It is comfortable to hold and quality is terrific. Would go perfectly with anyone into country or primitive decorating. I'm into country french which works as well.
Beautiful, high quality. I waited a month before writing a review. I have used this flatware everyday. I gave the set we were using to my son. I have hand washed, dishwasher washed, stacked in the silverware drawer. Outstanding. The design is definitely unusual. The star at the end is wonderfully carved. Truly one of the best sets I have purchased in my 50 years of buying flatware. What a wonderful piece of history we have to remember the night we will never forget..
I received my Flatware the other day.... It is beautiful and very sturdy. Can't wait for the holidays, as it will be my holiday dinnerware. Very satisfied with purchase.
Reed & Barton has done it again! The Titanic Replica flatware is beautiful! I can't wait to show it off! I'm planning a barbeque for this weekend and the flatware is going to be perfect!
I think this is a beautiful, perfect weight, quality set of flatware. So glad I ordered it and am happy with the way it looks. Such a fascinating story from history, yet a sad one. I may use it for everyday too. Reed and Barton makes quality items. As another reviewer mentioned, it can be used for different occasions, such as 4th of July, Memorial Day, and the holidays at the end of the year. So far, I am very pleased with this special set.
I recommend it.
Great Stainless Flatware Set
I just received my set today and wow, the balance and weight of the pieces are outstanding. There are so many occasions to use this set-patriotic holidays, Christmas, any time a special someone is a "super star", such as birthdays, christenings, baby showers, bridal showers, engagement dinners, etc. The only drawback would be I wish there were 8 more salad forks to use for dessert. However, if anyone has been thinking about this set, don't hesitate to buy it. It is perfect for every day, too. I also like the extra serving pieces; not many sets come with a cold meat fork, slotted spoon or dessert server.
Great purchase--it's from Reed and Barton!!
I received my flatware set yesterday, and am very pleased with the weight and feel of the 5 pc place setting. It comes with 8 (5) piece place settings and a hostess set. Reed and Barton is the maker, and I feel this set is a good value for the money. Also, it will be fun to tell friends and family about the fact it a copy of flatware recovered from the Titanic. I'm going to use this set everyday, and my hope is to use it for many yrs to come.
Just received this silverware and had forgotten that I had ordered it way back in April. I am so glad that I did. I did debate at the time, but trust QVC and Reed and Barton. It is just beautiful and just a great weight, which I am very picky about. Have put my other silverware away and use just this. I recommend it so highly. Words cannot describe how pleased I am. Thank you for this product. Sheila
This is a really nice set. The 18/10 is really shiny. This will be great for the holidays as the little star on the handle has a festive quality to it. They are a nice weight. Good buy. I would've been in 3rd class on the Titanic; so, this is exactly what I needed. I highly recommend. (Of course, it's Reed & Barton, which means that it is quality.) I'm wondering if I should get a second set.
