Very good-excellent condition. Some tarnish visible in recessed areas, which only serves to give depth and definition to the magnificent pattern. (French silversmiths use the trick of a very quick wipe and buff application of brass polish after wheel polishing to be sure there will be a trace of tarnish in recesses of a pattern, in order to show it at its best, which is what we've done for you here). Some of the pieces have small monograms while others do not. There are also twelve of the small cocktail forks but one has a slightly different pattern. 143.7 troy ounces or 4470 grams total weight not including the knives (193.7 troy ounces or 6026 grams with knives). See pictures for individual weights and measurements.
