Exquisite Antique Mother of Pearl Dessert Set, service for four. Collectible and quite luxurious, the Gilded Age engraved forks and knives makes this a bit more unusual and rare to find than the "normal" MOP flatware from the late 1800's. Elegant heavy knife handles feature a fluted sterling silver ferrule & engraved knife blade featuring ferns.

The forks have a beautiful engraved simpler design, with a beaded sterling ferrule. Knives were often different from the rest of the silver in the 1800's, as the silver was often a wedding gift- it was bad luck to gift knives.   

Hard to find such a lovely set, these with mother of pearl always seem to have quite a following and are avidly collected.This is an unusually decorative set to add to your collection of heirloom silver and to use to set your most beautiful table. Sold in a set for four.

  • Measure: knife-8-1/2"; fork-6-1/2".
