I have never come across such a lavish and and exquisite lined case for a set of these late Victorian fruit knives and forks before. The interior of the solid Oak case is a real joy, lined a beautiful printed pure silk to the center of the lid and to the base underneath the layer of forks. Both are surrounded by a perfect Teal coloured velvet.
The knives and forks are beautifully decorated and all fully marked by the silversmith, LEVESLEY BROTHERS & LLOYD of Sheffield. The lid of the case also has the retailer's label in; Edwin Davis, Late Allott and Co., Bradford.
The handles are all made of solid carved and polished Mother of Pearl shell or Nacre with a wonderful shiny patina showcasing it's magical iridescent qualities.
Excellent condition, each knife measuring 8" ; each fork measuring 6 3/4" and the case measuring 11 3/4" x 9 1/4" x 2 1/4". Late Victorian in era, c.1890 / 1900.
