Description


This fine antique George V sterling silver and mother of pearl fruit/dessert service consists of six knives and six forks.


The blades of the knives have a shaped pointed form and the forks each have four tines/prongs.


The anterior surface of each knife is embellished with fine and impressive bright cut engraved scrolling decoration accented with a simplified leaf and floral motifs.


The anterior surface of each fork is ornamented with a bright cut engraved paralleling scalloped border accented with a central leaf design.


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


Each piece of this silver dessert set is fitted with the original carved mother of pearl handle.


All the knives and forks retain the original hallmarked sterling silver ferrules ornamented with embossed fluted decoration in swirl design amidst bands of ribbed ornamentation.


Each mother of pearl knife and fork is fitted to the fine and impressive original hinged mahogany canteen box with a lift up lid and lift out tray.


The interior of the box retains the original velvet lining and tray tags.


This impressive canteen box is ornamented with brass fittings, including a vacant shaped cartouche and escutcheon.


Date: 1911

Condition


This antique silver dessert set 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 reverse 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 antique cutlery.
