Elegant antique to vintage French 12pc 9 5/8" dinner knife set, pristine "inoxydable" stainless steel blades with ebony & sterling silver handles! You may think it a little odd that we'd offer a set that might not be ebony, but faux ebony, but the best resource for these vintage knives made for use gives us a price of 75 euro each. SO, even our price is lower and the quality is higher. They're wonderful at table, look magnificent and are perfectly viable for use. We're not sure but the ebony looking handles may be genuine ebony or just an ebonized wood. The markings on the blades, "inoxydable", means they're stainless steel. All of the visual appeal of Napoleon III era ebony handled knives, priced as vintage though so don't miss them! Perfect for your fine dining table setting. We have quite a few exquisite antique French sterling silver flatware sets, too, add the knives and you're ready to 'wow' your guests.
Very good to excellent condition. Just as you see them, as near pristine as one could hope for given the age. There are a few age/drying splits in the backs of some of the ebony or ebonized wood handles. The box is not original to the set but works perfectly for storage. See pictures for measurements.
