The exterior of the box has been polished by a cabinet maker and is in excellent presentation condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each knife and reverse of each fork drop, in addition to the ferrules, are all very clear; the hallmarks to the blades are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these fine examples of antique cutlery.
