Antique French Empire Sterling Vermeil Ice Cream Service 14 PC
Dimensions: serving knife is 10.5" long, 1.5" at the widest and weighs 105 grams. serving spoons: 9.5" long, 2.75" at the widest and weighs 80 grams. spoons: 5.25" long, 1.25" at the widest and weight: 25 grams each. Combined weight is 486 grams .950 sterling silver. (French sterling has more parts silver than American and British sterling, where the standard is .925 parts silver.) Marks: each piece has the Minerve 1st titre; as noted, the .950 sterling guarantee since 1838. And each bears the maker's punch for Lapparra & Gabriel, active 1902-1923 at 157 rue du Temple, Paris. A final note: neither the fabulous little sterling tray or the exquisite vermeil sterling tazza in the photos come with the service. They are for sale however ;)
