Fabulous antique French 12pc sterling silver 7.5" dessert or fruit knife set, ornate repousse handles with sterling blades and wonderful condition! Yes, the handles and blades on this set are in hallmarked sterling silver. A complete service for twelve, eleven original with one slightly longer and possibly a commissioned replacement. French Minerve or Minerva hallmarks of the 2nd titre designating a .800 silver content, just under that of sterling silver. 'LG' maker marks on eleven (likely for Lapparra et Gabriel, Paris) and 'LV' on the one replacement (Vuillermet Louis, Lyon). A remarkable set, guaranteed to please!
