Pride stainless steel limited edition rosewood handled 58-piece canteen

£1,800.00
David Mellor collection.

It's been 70 years since David Mellor created his iconic Pride cutlery. To celebrate this anniversary, we have created special limited-edition Rosewood sets of this beloved range.

No design embodies Britain’s own brand of understated modernism better than Pride. Originally created in 1953 while Mellor was at the Royal College of Art, Pride was the first student design to be put into mass manufacture. It is now as emblematic of British design as the Mini, the Anglepoise lamp or the Tube map.

To mark its 70th anniversary, Corin Mellor has created 20 spectacular limited-edition sets with Rosewood handles and mirror polished blades. Packaged in specially created Walnut canteen boxes with moulded burnt sienna interiors - a nod to Pride’s impeccable mid-century credentials. These luxurious limited-edition sets are completed by a celebratory edition-marked plaque.

Limited to 2 canteens per customer.

Canteen set contents:

58-piece: 8 table knives, 8 dessert knives, 8 table forks, 8 dessert forks, 8 soup spoons, 8 dessert spoons, 8 tea spoons, 2 serving spoons, 1 knife rack.

David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well designed tableware is a vital part of any interior. The company was set up by David Mellor, Royal Designer for Industry, in the 1950s. The first and now famous David Mellor shop opened in Sloane Square, London, in 1969 and soon became a focal point of Swinging Sixties Chelsea and remains one of London’s most original and individual shops. We run our own design office within the company and so the David Mellor collection is constantly evolving. Many of our products are designed by Corin Mellor, Creative Director, exclusively for the David Mellor shops and are produced by specially selected workshop producers and manufacturers. David Mellor now holds one of the most impressive collections of the finest British Crafts and sophisticated modern tableware and kitchenware, including the world famous David Mellor Cutlery, to be found on the international scene.
David Mellor was one of the great 20th century designers with an international reputation for his cutlery. He was born in Sheffield and trained originally as a silversmith. Examples of his metalwork are in museum collections as over the world. David Mellor established his first workshop in 1973 before moving production to his purpose-built factory, The Round Building in Hathersage, Derbyshire, in 1990. He has drawn on Sheffield traditions of craftsmanship in evolving a product altogether of our time.
