Elegant antique French Louis XVIII to Charles X era 6pc teaspoon set, rich vermeil or 18k gold on hallmarked French silver in wonderful condition and in the original shaped leather storage or travel etui! These older sets are very rare, hard to find with the original case as you see here. A complete six piece set in the original shaped red embossed leather case! All six pieces bear the French Socrate or Socrates hallmarks, the tiny number "2" within those marks designates them as being in at least .800 silver content (80% pure so just under the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The lowered silver content is quite common in these smaller pieces, giving them added strength as they would likely bend to easily if in .950 silver. An 18k gold plating over the silver gives them even that much more visual appeal! A lovely and rare older set, in fabulous condition given their nearly 200 years, don't miss them!
Very good condition. As you can see in the images, there are no dents damage or repairs to note and hardly a sign of wear to the vermeil! The box is also in great shape, no notable damage to the red leather exterior and both clasps are intact. See pictures for weights and measurements.
