Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver fruit serving set consists of a pair of fruit serving / berry spoons and a pair of grape shears.


Each piece has exceptional scrolling leaf decorated handles, accented with paralleling incurved borders, in addition to bright cut engraved geometric detailing.


The posterior surface of each piece is plain and unembellished.


The serving/berry spoons have elongated, rounded bowls embellished with exceptional chased floral and scrilling leaf ornamentation amidst bead borders; the outer rim of each spoon has a crimped finish.


The interior of each silver spoon bowl retains the original gilding.


The fine pair of antique Victorian sterling silver grape shears has a hinged scissor action.


The handles of the grape scissors reflect the identical ornamentation of that to the spoons, in addition to bright cut engraved rounded fingerpieces.


The circular hinged portion is embellished with a floral rosette design.


The hallmarked, rounded blades of these fine grape shears are plain and unembellished.


This antique sterling silver scissor and spoon set is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with satin and velvet lined interior, securing with a push fit catch.


The interior of the box bears the retailer's mark 'By Appointment, Elikington & Co', beneath the Royal coronet.
