Elegant antique French Louis-Philippe era sterling silver 12pc 8" entremet, luncheon, dessert or cheese knife set, all with original sterling silver blades and unique interlaced triple "C" monogram appliqué or overlay! The monogram very interesting, I can't quite tell if they're supposed to be three intermingled "C's" or horseshoes maybe? "Calm, Cool & Collected" ? In any event, they do capture your attention. Weighted sterling silver handles and even the blades are sterling, somewhat rare since the French usually used .800 silver in knife blades. All, blades and handles, bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmarks, the tiny number "1" within each of those marks means they're all in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith marks are early and for Pierre Queille, Paris circa 1834-1846. Queille a well known and reputable silversmith who also worked with or for the House of Odiot on occasion. Fabulous, don't miss them.

Very good condition. The handles are filled, meaning they are hollow sterling silver that have been filled with a solid material (not solid sterling silver). There is some dimpling to the handles but no larger dents to note. It looks like only one blade has a small ding to the curved tip, no other dents, bends, damage or repairs to note. See pictures for weight and measurements.
