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

The cover to the box is missing one hinged latch and no longer sits flush when closed; this impressive box can be considered in very good presentation condition, in keeping with age.

Each component of this German silver cutlery has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.

The pattern decoration is very sharp.

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

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine and impressive canteen.
