Description


This fine antique Edwardian sterling silver and mother of pearl fruit/dessert service consists of twelve knives and twelve forks.


The blades of the knives have a plain pointed form with a serrated edge to the tip and the forks each have three tines/prongs.


The anterior surface of each knife is embellished with fine and impressive bright cut engraved simplified floral festoons along one side, accented with a central ribbon bow design.


The anterior surface of each fork is ornamented with a bright cut engraved scalloped design with a stylised triangular ornamentation emanating from each incurve.


The reverse surface of each piece is plain and unembellished; apart from the featured hallmarks.


Each piece of this service is fitted with the original subtly tapering, rounded rectangular mother of pearl handle.


All the knives and forks retain the original hallmarked sterling silver ferrules ornamented with embossed scrolling leaf ornamentation.


Each mother of pearl knife and fork is fitted to the fine and impressive original hinged mahogany box with a lift up lid and velvet lined interior.


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


Date: 1908

Condition


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

The service has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.

The interior of the presentation box bears a vacant alcove which previously held the retailer's plaque.

The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

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


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