Click image for detail

Beautifully decorative complete boxed set of twelve desert or luncheon knives and forks, with wonderful iridescent Mother of Pearl hand carved handles, engraved silver plated blades and tines.  The decorative sterling ferrules are the kind we {and our clients!} are always searching for. The knives are fully marked with the silversmith's initials J.S. & S. This set comes with it's original solid Mahogany presentation box. It is not perfect, it's been loved and used by a family for over 100 years at their table, please see the photos for the condition of some of the knives on the underside.

I've tried my best to show the wear, six knives are in really great condition, the others have the wear, two of the worst ones are fairly clear. The fitted wood case has done it's job of keeping them safe and in good condition, it is lined in blue, it has minor wear commensurate with age. After a {most unsuitable!} suitor broke one of the knives, the family was thrilled to find one to "marry" to this set. Knife: 8" long;Fork: 7-1/2"long. A gorgeous treat for any table setting, and a magnificent gift for a favorite. Please only purchase this if you can love a set with history, patina, and stories to tell.
