Fabulous antique French 1819-1838 Louis XVIII to Louis Philippe era sterling silver 24pc dinner sized flatware set, a 4pc table setting for SIX with engraved crown topped armorial style crests or heraldry and wonderful condition! Gorgeous and nearly 200 years old! The forks & spoons all bear the French Michel-Ange or Michelangelo & Ceres hallmarks, the tiny number "1" within those marks means they're in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith marks on all except one fork are for Laurent Labbe, Paris circa 1829-1852. One fork appears to be a later replacement, has the same pattern and armorial crest but post-1838 Minerve and silversmith marks for Maitreau, Paris. The knives are not original to the set but compliment them beautifully and would be of a similar style to those used. The blades are all marked "Jules Piault", another prominent French silversmith. A beautiful table setting for six, don't miss them!
Very good-excellent condition. No damage or repairs to the forks & spoons, just the one note of the replacement fork. The knives all have the original steel blades, not stainless so there may be a bit of visible age corrosion. See pictures for individual weights and measurements.
