Gorgeous antique French sterling silver 4pc serving implement set, meat carving knife & fork and hors d’oeuvre or condiment knife & fork with seashell shaped “Sevigne” style pattern and PUIFORCAT silversmith mark! I’m pretty sure that these pieces were joined in this set, the smaller hors d’oeuvres pieces with slightly different silversmith marks (mostly illegible) but all with the seashell shaped Puiforcat “Sevigne” pattern and as they came to us from France so we’re offering all together. The meat carving knife & fork with elegant ebony or ebonized wood handles, rare also in that the tines of the fork piece are hallmarked sterling silver (Puiforcat hallmarks there), normally these are all in steel like the knife blade. Beautiful and as elegantly French as can be, perfect complimenting service pieces to an existing fine sterling silver setting and guaranteed to please.
Very good to excellent condition. A few tiny dark spots to the carving knife blade but all, as you can see, in superb condition. See pictures for all individual weights and measurements.
