This fine antique Victorian sterling silver mounted and ivory handled carving set consists of two carving knives, two carving forks and a sharpening steel.

Each piece is fitted with a steel blade; the fine and impressive blades of the sabre style carving knives have a broad incurved shaped form, incorporating the silversmiths mark 'Trade Mark, Allen & Darwin, Sheffield' in addition to an hourglass design to the anterior surface.

The finger piece to each carving fork is embellished with the trade mark hourglass motif above the registration number '252772'.

The pieces of this fine set are fitted with fine and impressive carved ivory handles featuring impressive hallmarked sterling silver embossed and applied gadroon decorated terminals.

The decoration to each terminal incorporates an opposing scroll bordered vacant oval cartouche to each side.

All the components of this antique carving set retain the original hallmarked sterling silver ferrules ornamented with a broad band of embossed and applied decoration reflecting the identical style to that of the terminals.

Each ferrule and terminal features an embossed registration mark amidst the hallmarks.

This service is fitted to the fine and impressive hinged oak wood presentation box with a lift up lid, featuring a velvet and satin lined interior.

The box retains the original brass fittings, including a vacant shaped cartouche and hinged catch.

Date: 1897


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

There are some minor surface blemishes to the steel blades as to be expected in keeping with age, but can be considered to be in excellent presentation condition.

The embossed and applied decoration is very sharp.

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

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