Description


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


The blades of the knives have a plain pointed form and the forks each have three tines.


The anterior surface of each knife is embellished with profuse bright cut engraved scroll and stylised leaf decoration.


The anterior surface of each fork is ornamented with a bright cut engraved stylised leaf motif accented with a simple hexafoil design.


The reverse surface of each piece is plain and unembellished.


Each piece of this service is fitted with the original rounded mother of pearl handle.


All the knives and forks retain the original hallmarked sterling silver ferrules ornamented with embossed stylised floral and leaf decoration incorporating a vacant oval cartouche to one side.


The dessert/fruit service is fitted to the impressive original hinged oak box with a lift up lid and a velvet lined lift out tray.


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

Condition


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

The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

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


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