Our Reference #: 52438
A suite of 12 forks and 12 knives with mother of pearl handles, ornate ferrules and close silver plated uppers (silver on steel). They will date c. 1860.
Condition: One fork is a period replacement in a different pattern but same size. There are some obvious reglued chips to some of the knife handles and some slight stress cracks etc but all are 'solid'. Plating to the knives is showing its age with surface marks from use and slight wear. Forks have some slight wear at prongs with the odd few have some more obvious wear to rears etc. One fork ferrule has some movement but all pieces are solid & useable. Restrainers to the forks have perished a little and some of the forks tend to fall out when lid closed. Lid is missing its brass plaque. Has its key and lock still works.
