Crafted in Brescia, a town in northern Italy celebrated for its artisanal metalwork, these utensils are reminiscent of antique flatware. Their cast-pewter handles are slightly distressed and bear two tiny hallmarks. To ensure durability, the fork tines and spoon bowls are made of 18/10 stainless steel. Each piece is polished by hand. A place setting includes an 8" dinner fork, 7 1/4" salad fork, 9 1/4" dinner knife, 8" soup spoon and 6 1/2" teaspoon. The 20-piece set includes four place settings. We recommend washing by hand. Made in Italy. A Williams Sonoma exclusive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy from Exquisite pewter flatware My husband and I bought 12 place settings of the Alton flatware and have enjoyed using them every day for several years. I wash them by hand and when the pewter handles are looking slightly tarnished I use a soft wet sponge with Bar Keepers Friend and that restores the silvery finish. The BKF isn’t abrasive at all so doesn’t mar the pewter. However, the aged patina is beautiful as well. We love pewter and this pattern is simple luxury.Date published: 2019-10-12Rated 5 out of 5 by bab0027 from Love this flatware! I hardly use my dishwasher so that aspect does not bother me one bit. This is my everyday flatware and I love it. It can be dressed up or down, goes with almost anything, and fits my style perfectly. I don't like flatware that's too "new and shiny" and I also don't like ornate or fancy. This is somewhere in between. As a couple of other reviewers have mentioned, they are "off balance" (which you can easily feel if you've picked them up at the store, due to the two different metals) but this has never been an issue or bothered me/us. I guess it all depends on the person and I happen to just love this flatware.Date published: 2016-07-26Rated 5 out of 5 by RachelS from I love these! This is the most beautiful cutlery, heavy, classic, sturdy cutlery, every time I go to LA I save up to buy 2 more place settings, I always wash them by hand, it takes a few seconds and they are too precious to ruin. I'm going in 2 days again, Williams-Sonoma here I come!Date published: 2015-03-27Rated 2 out of 5 by MellieB from Annoyingly off-balance My husband and I both loved this flatware when we were registering. We've been married for over four years and have regretted selecting this ever since. We had wanted heavier flatware for everyday use, and this flatware meets that need. It is also lovely. However, it is so off-balance that the pieces fall off the plate, out of the bowl, etc., every time we use it. It's SO FRUSTRATING! I have "had it," and I've finally decided to write this reveiw and look for another set to purchase. I can't believe it's taken me this long to bite the bullet. We are so annoyed and disappointed. A product of this price and quality should not cause such distress. Also, some of the handles have aged to a lovely patina, while others have become rough like sandpaper. Very inconsistent quality.Date published: 2015-03-12Rated 3 out of 5 by Jackster77 from Beautiful but they tarnish They tarnished very soon after I received them. I would not recommend them unless you want to spend time polishing. They were beautiful when new and nice and heavy too. But even after polishing they never looked as good as new.Date published: 2015-01-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Leicamom from We use this everyday and love it. My husband and I were recently married and wanted all new flatware and we chose pewter because of its uniqueness. Not everyone wants to hand wash, but it didn't influence our decision to buy. The weight, balance and pattern are beautiful. It makes an outstanding table with the Pillivuyt dinnerware we also purchased from Williams-Sonoma.Date published: 2014-01-06Rated 5 out of 5 by SCB2013 from Beautiful flatware Included these in my wedding registry after careful selection from several different companies. We have been really pleased with the quality and durability thus far (7 months of use). I put them in the dishwasher (new Bosche) and have not had any issues. They are a little bit high maintenance due to the pewter since you aren't supposed to leave them in the sink with dirty dishes overnight and handwashing is also recommended. Also, the thick handles make them somewhat hard to store but I haven't had a big issue.Date published: 2013-12-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat1959 from Alton Flatware - EXTRAORDINARY I had visited a Williams Sonoma store in San Antonio, on February 8th and viewed the Alton Flatware sample in the store. I did not purchase anything at that time. Since then, I've shopped the housewares sections at stores in my local area and came to the quick realization that there was no comparison in existence, to that of this superior flatware, available only from Williams Sonoma. I ultimately ordered two 20 piece settings about two weeks back and have thoroughly enjoyed the flatware. Each piece is perfectly weighted and the "tines" of the fork are a perfect length. I found the "tablespoon" to be useful as a soup spoon. A set is well worth the investment made and I would recommend this flatware as a superior find for your dining pleasure.Date published: 2013-04-16
