Commissioned in 1963 by the British government to showcase the best of modern British design, David Mellor's Embassy Flatware range was originally intended for use in British embassies. The collection included a range of silver tableware, such as the famous Embassy teapot, candlesticks, and toast rack, all designed by Mellor himself.

The Embassy range received widespread acclaim and was awarded a Design Council Award for being "the best of its kind produced in this country for many years." Characterized by its grand scale and exceptional elegance, Embassy flatware features Mellor's distinctive flair in the unique shaping of the knife handle and the minimalist design of the three-prong fork.

Today, Embassy Flatware is meticulously crafted to the original design in mirror-polished stainless steel, with each piece hand-finished individually and marked with a 'DM' maker's mark. For those seeking the ultimate luxury, Embassy Flatware is also available in sterling silver, handmade to order by specialist Sheffield maker Fletcher Robinson and individually hallmarked by the Sheffield Assay Office.

This five-piece stainless steel flatware set includes two forks, two spoons, and a knife, offering both timeless elegance and superior functionality for any dining occasion.
