This incredible set by Dominick and Haff in the 1895 Pointed Antique pattern are in more than excellent condition. The blades and tines appear to be never used. The sterling handles have minimal wear. The carving fork is 8 7/8" in length and the carving knife is 9 3/4" in length. The tines on the fork says stainless and the knife blade says brilliant. The sterling handles have the Dominck and Haff makers mark and sterling handle on them although the fork Dominick and Haff mark is harder to see. These pieces are not monogrammed. I can't emphasize enough on the blade and tines, they look new. A really great set! Use this for yourself or give as a gift!
