Our Reference #: 51082
A set of 12 pairs of dessert knives and forks by Walker & Hall c. 1880 with fruit & vine chasing to their silver plated uppers. Plating is close plated, I.e. silver on steel. Original case.
Condition: All hand polished & gleaming silver with some use marks to fronts but generally look very good to fronts. The rears of 2 forks in particular show some wear/loss of silver, some other shave a lot less wear and there is the odd slight loss/scratch or dig to some of the knife blades mainly to ears. Handles are generally very good other than 1 knife handle and a few of the forks have a minor stress line at hilt area. There are no chips. Case overall good with some very slight front left corner veneer lift to lid & some marks/surface scratches.
