To me this is old school design in flatware. This 65-piece cutlery setting for 12 is intended to be paired with a Royal Albert table setting but most definitely is not required. The gold roses are what add that extra flair to the design of this cutlery. I love the look and the price is pretty good too. Made of 18/10 stainless steel that is dishwasher safe (word is that the gold accents hold up well) it includes a place fork, place knife, place spoon, salad fork and teaspoon.
