Elegant antique to vintage French 12pc 9 7/8" dinner knife set, stainless steel blades with ebony & silver style 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 great and viable for use considering our last real ebony knives went for over $4500. We're not sure but the ebony looking handles may be a form of celluloid or early plastic. The markings on the blades are for Kindal, started by Magnus Kindal in 1898. All of the visual appeal of Napoleon III era ebony handled knives, priced as vintage faux ebony though so don't miss them!
Very good condition. Some tarnish and or corrosion on the silver caps & collars (untested). Very slight separation at the caps on a few, also where the handles meet the blades but only a hair's width. See pictures for measurements.
