Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver and mother of pearl dessert service for eighteen persons consists of eighteen dessert knives and eighteen dessert forks.


The blades of the knives have a plain rectangular rounded form and are embellished to both surfaces with bright cut engraved stylised floral and swag decoration.


The forks have four tines and are ornamented to the anterior and reverse surface with bright cut engraved stylised floral decoration.


Each piece of this service is fitted with a large and impressive carved mother of pearl handle.


The pieces of this set have impressive embossed stylised scrolling leaf decorated ferrules.


The dessert service is fitted to the original hinged mahogany box with a lift up lid and three velvet lined lift out trays.


The box is ornamented with brass fittings, including a circular escutcheon and a shaped cartouche featuring the original engraving ‘Florence Boddy – Xmas 1909’*.


*This item is associated with the same family as the fish service W5852. The services would sit very well together.


Date: 1868

Condition


This antique dessert service is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The decoration to each piece is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each piece are all very clear.

The mahogany box has been professionally polished by a cabinet maker, and is also in excellent presentation condition, although there are some piece dividers missing.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of each item of antique Victorian silverware.
