Fabulous antique French sterling silver 4pc hors d'oeuvre serving implement set with machined guilloche style pattern, acanthus accents, hallmarked sterling silver blades, tines & bowls and original fitted storage and/or presentation box! Both the handles and blade, bowls and tines, etc. bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmarks, the tiny number "1" marking within designates them as being in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). Tiny silversmith marks are for Leon Lambert, Paris c. 1881-1904. A gorgeous set, great additions to your existing fine sterling silver table service!
Very good condition. Some tarnish visible in the images but I've since polished them better. No breaks or repairs to note. The box is in fine shape, as you can see. See pictures for weights and measurements.
