Benjamin Franklin is a very traditional pattern, with the fiddle shape body, thread border, and detailed shell adornment. Custom engraving is fairly common for this pattern, and the surface area is large enough to showcase your initials.
This pattern is now considered "Made to Order". Please allow 4-6 weeks for Place/Dinner settings to be delivered and up to 6 months if ordering Open Stock or other pieces that are not currently in stock.
We include the Regency chest by Wallace Silversmiths, but you can also apply that cost to a different chest.
HH stands for "Hollow Handle", which means that the item has been made with a hollow sterling silver handle, and a stainless steel utensil has been inserted into it. Generally, the dinner knife handle is used for serving pieces, and a smaller version is used for the Butter Knife and Butter Spreader.
