Fabulous antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era genuine horn & silver handled knife set, a rare comprehensive collection of twenty-four including twelve larger dinner sized 9 3/4" pieces and twelve in the 8 1/8" entremet or dessert size! All with genuine carved horn and sterling to .800 silver handles in that marvelous Empire style with classical torch & quiver, laurel accenting and original steel blades! As many sets of fine Antique sterling silver flatware as we have now and more about to list, we've been working hard to find beautiful sets of knives to compliment them and to give our customers a nice choice. I think this week shows you what the right knives can really do for your collection and for your table. We have sets with horn, ebony, mother of pearl handles just to name a few. Mix & match with your existing fine silver table service or put one together with us today! We also have a few truly magnificent and comprehensive old French sterling silver flatware sets coming in so, watch for them in the very near future. Thanks!

Very good condition. The sets match perfectly, identical silver caps and collars in that wonderful Empire style. Each size comes in its own storage/presentation box and each has different markings on the blades. All are in fine shape with just a bit of tarnish or corrosion on the blades. The horn on the larger pieces has less luster than the smaller ones, more use and a bit more wear. See pictures for measurements.
