Description


This fine antique Victorian sterling silver mounted and antler handled carving and fish serving set consists of two carving knives, two carving forks, a sharpening steel and a pair of fish servers.


The fine and impressive plain steel blades of the carving knives have a plain pointed form, incorporating the silversmiths mark ‘Henry Wigfull, Silversmith, Cutler, Sheffield’ to the anterior surface.


The electroplated blade to the fish knife has a broad incurved shaped form and the fork has a shaped lobed form.


Both the fish servers have fine and impressive bright cut engraved stylised leaf and floral decoration to the anterior surface, and a narrow band of tooled decoration paralleling the shape of each blade to the reverse.


Each piece of this service is fitted with a shaped antler handle featuring an impressive hallmarked sterling silver embossed and chased decorated ribbed and leaf decorated terminal.


All the components retain the hallmarked sterling silver ferrules ornamented with a broad band of embossed scrolling leaf ornamentation.


This service is fitted to the fine and impressive original hinged oak presentation box with a lift up lid and red velvet and satin lined interior.


The box is ornamented with brass fittings, including a vacant shaped cartouche.


Date: 1897

Condition


This antique service is a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The oak box is in presentation condition with a minor blemish to the cartouche, this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece.

There are some minor surface blemishes to the carving steel as to be expected in keeping with age.

The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each mount and ferrule are all very clear.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these fine examples of Victorian silverware.
