Elegant Antique French Sterling Silver & Mother of Pearl 12pc 8" Knife Set, Box
Absolutely gorgeous antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era sterling silver & solid mother of pearl handled 12pc 8" luncheon, entremet or dessert knife set, ornate rococo style pattern & fitted storage and/or presentation box. Aren't these fabulous! A complete twelve piece set in the smaller luncheon, entremet or dessert sized knives. All with sterling silver collars and bulbous, solid, shimmering mother of pearl handles! My personal favorite, there's nothing like the feel of sterling and mother of pearl in your hand.... We have knife sets in all styles and varieties but the pearl handled ones are, and will be, my favorite where aesthetics and feel are concerned. This a smaller luncheon or dessert size, each is 8" in length and weighs 36 grams. The blades all appear original and are likely steel given their age. Recently professionally polished and as fine as can be, don't miss them.
Very good condition. One of the mother of pearl handles has a large chip near its end, the knife third from the right in the very first image. Some small spots of tarnish or corrosion on the steel blades but, as you can see, all are in great shape. See pictures for measurements, etc..
