White Star Line’s reputation was always based on the quality of its service to its passengers, with this in mind it makes perfect sense that when choosing the silver service for its liners they would only buy the best.

As a result companies such as Elkington were employed to create not only beautiful silver plated creations for use within the ships dining saloons in a hotel type setting, but they had to cope with the riggers of the possibilities of being thrown around in an Atlantic storm, as well as the early machine dish washers of that era.
