Set/5 Vintage MOTHER OF PEARL Handle Fruit Knives - Sterling Ferrule, Numsen Bros
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
One of my consignors takes in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being melted so I will be offering a lot of serving pieces and some of the best ANTIQUE silver pieces that come my way. So, may I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From Numsen Bros (who appears to be a maker of note of flatware) here's a set of 5 fruit knifes with mother of pearl handles, a sterling silver ferrule and a silverplate blade.
CONDITION: Very nice, The mother of pearl panels are quite clean, shiny and smooth with no chips or cracks. The ferrules have an oval cartouche on one side and lots of curlicues on the other. No monogram. Blades are still very sharp and as you can see by the photos, a professional polish is needed on the blades (or else a lot of elbow grease on behalf of the new owner). I have polished as much as I dared to take the pics.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver ferrule
BLADE: I believe silverplate.
HALLMARKS: Numsen Bros Warranted (too hard to photograph perfectly though it may show in the last photo).
SIZE: Each piece measures 6-1/4" long; width at the handle is 9/16".
Buy with Confidence. ROBINS NEST MIDWEST has the highest rating a shop can attain on Ruby Lane.
