Very nice collection of early toy and child’s flatware. There are 18 pieces with varying handles made of ceramic, Blue Onion pattern china, bone and horn. The Blue Onion china are marked Germany and the pink ceramic are marked Austria.
Most are toy size with forks 3-1/2 inches long and knives 4-1/2 inches long.
The two longer settings have 6-1/2 knives and are large enough for children to use for eating.
Overall condition is excellent. All are completely original.
One pink handled knife is missing a piece from the top of the handle.
One toy fork is loose from its handle.
Knife and fork with swirled handles each have one split.
Date from about 1890 but I believe some are earlier. Scarce patterns and lovely old forms make them a fine addition to any collection.
