Condition: Case: overall good although the lock has been forced leaving some minor digs to the centre front of lid and base. Some slight scratches to lid. Lid presentation plaque has some slight plate wear. Cutlery: the knives and meat set are in generally superb condition, most look unused or maybe just used once or twice, One of the cheese knives is missing its rivet cap to end of handle but it doesn’t cause a problem, it is just cosmetic. No handle cracks to any piece. Flatware: All hand polished & gleaming silver with average use marks, a few pieces show less wear and a couple of dessert spoons have some slight plate wear to rear heels. Most pieces are original to the set, there are a few replacement pieces (1 dessert spoon and 2 table forks).
