Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver and mother of pearl fish service for twelve persons consists of twelve fish knives and twelve fish forks.


The impressive plain sabre style knife blades have a broad incurved shaped form, and the forks have three tines with a shaped cylindrical shaft.


Each piece of this fish cutlery set is fitted with the original and impressive sterling silver ribbed handle ornamented with panels of mother of pearl.


The handles incorporate a fine and impressive embossed sterling silver scrolling lobed design to each terminal.


The hallmarked ferrule to each piece is encircled with bands of embossed decoration.


Each piece of the fish serice bears the same credentials but due to the hallmarking system the blades bear the date letter 't' and the ferrules feature 's'.


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


This is an exceptional set with unusual and desirable handles.


Date: 1914
