Absolutely gorgeous antique French Charles X era (c. 1830-40) 24pc 8 1/4" entremet or dessert sized knife set with ornate figural machined steel blades, elegant gilded sterling silver or 'vermeil' caps & collars and carved mother of pearl handles! I love all sorts but these fabulous old pearl handled knives really are a favorite, it's hard to get more elegant that pearl & vermeil! A rare set of eighteen, all with matching monograms incised in the pearl handles and on the boxes brass cartouche. In the original storage or presentation box, rosewood with brass inlay, carved edging and opulent fitted interior. Of course, the knives are the real treasure but an elegant old package makes them all the more fun! All remarkable, beautiful, don't miss them!

Very good condition. No damage to note to the knives. Some tarnish or corrosion on the steel blades, as you can see in the images. The box is original and in fine shape but does have repaired or replaced brass strip inlays (with tiny chipping around the strips). A split in the base and repair to the rear corners of the box (separated at the original joints). Working lock & key. See pictures for measurements.
