An antique Georgian sterling silver dessert service for six with Mother of Pearl handles. Set in the original presentation case the forks and knives are classic and clean in design. The pearl handles are square with cantered edges. The set could fill in for a fish or cheese course with ease.
English, Circa 1825, hallmarked for sterling silver as denoted by the Lion Passant mark, Monarch's mark is present along with the maker's mark for John Law. Date mark and assay town are too worn to read; however, Law entered his mark in 1824 in Sheffield and the Monarch's mark on the set was used only until 1833. This places the set between 1824-1833
Measurements; knives 7 1/2" long, forks 6 1/4" long. Total weight 400grams Wood case in good condition, lock is in closed position so the lid does not fit tight.
