Description


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


Each piece is fitted with a steel blade; the fine and impressive blades of the sabre style carving knives have a broad incurved shaped form, incorporating the silversmiths mark ‘Walker & Hall, Sheffield’ to the anterior surface.


The pieces of this fine set are fitted with shaped antler handles featuring impressive hallmarked sterling silver embossed leaf decorated terminals.


The decoration to each terminal has a matt background incorporating a bead bordered vacant oval cartouche to each side.


All the components of this antique carving set retain the original hallmarked sterling silver ferrules ornamented with a broad band of embossed scrolling leaf ornamentation amidst bead borders.


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


The box retains the original brass fittings, including a vacant shaped cartouche and hinged catch.


Date: 1892

Condition


This antique carving set is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

There are some minor surface blemishes to the steel blades as to be expected in keeping with age, but can be considered to be in excellent presentation condition.

The embossed decoration is very sharp.

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


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