These antique fish knives and forks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The box is also in excellent presentation condition and has been professional polished by a cabinet maker.

There is some minor crazing to the handles, as to be expected in keeping with age.

The bright cut engraved and tooled decoration is all very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the fish knife blades and reverse of the fish forks are all very clear.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these exaxmples of antique flatware.
