Exceptional Victorian era 24 piece flatware set. Such an unusual and pretty set, it is very good quality as the pieces are heavy and so well constructed. The mother of pearl handles are fully encased in the silver making the pearl invulnerable to cracking or yellowing. It was very hard to photograph the mother of pearl but it is so lovely. The knives are intricately engraved with a scalloped pattern on the blade back. Hallmarks on blade indicate a maker WP. Each knife measures 8 3/4”, each fork measures 7 1/4” which is much more substantial than most sets. Comes in a wooden box with beautiful royal blue interior. In excellent condition, the knives and forks appear to of been seldom used. The box has warped slightly and the owners removed a bit of the lining so the top tray can fit inside but the box does not close completely. It protects the set nicely though.
