This bar set comprises a bottle opener, a measure, tongs, a spoon and a cocktail knife in stainless steel with a mahogany stand. It dates from the 1960's and was made by Viners of Sheffield. Viners were founded in 1901 and grew to be the biggest cutlery manufacturer in England after the Second World War, employing over 1000 people. They produced stainless steel, electroplated and silver kitchen, dinnerware and cutlery products and were one of the first Sheffield firms to hire designers to develop distinct product ranges.
