Description


This fine antique Victorian sterling silver gilt and mother of pearl fruit/dessert service consists of twenty four knives and twenty four forks.


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


The hallmarked sterling silver surface to each piece of this dessert service is gilded; if required, this service could be professionally stripped of gilt, back to the silver.


The plain cylindrical mother of pearl handles are ornamented with hallmarked silver gilt terminals and ferrules, each embellished with embossed fluted decoration in a swirl design.


These impressive examples of antique silverware are supplied in felt cutlery rolls; which not only protect the items in storage but significantly reduces tarnishing.

Condition


The pieces of this antique silver dessert service are an extremely good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

There are some superficial blemishes to the blades in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Full hallmarks to the ferrules, terminals and blade of each piece are all very clear.


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