Elegant antique Gilded Age six piece knife set, with elegant solid mother of pearl handles & sterling silver ferrules. Absolutely stunning when used with your fine French sterling silver table service. The blades are silver plated with a rounded tip, the handles have a decorative carved design.
A traditional wedding gift, silver flatware was often sold and packaged without the knives, as a gift of knives was a symbol of ending or severing a relationship. Hard to find such a lovely set, these with mother of pearl always seem to have quite a following and are avidly collected. Sure to become a favorite on your beautiful table or for your collection, a few of the blades have minor wear as you would expect after over 100 years. Sold in a set of six.
