Date: 1895

These antique mother of pearl fish servers are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The original box is in exceptional presentation condition.

The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp and the embossed ornamentation is very sharp; the definition of these details indicates these servers have seen little or no use.

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


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of Victorian silverware.
