We are so excited to offer you this exceptional and RARE flatware set of 24 pieces. Made by Paul Tallois, 1907-1928; this dinner service comprised of 4 piece place settings for 6: a fish fork and fish knife, a dessert fork and spoon. The opulence of the decoration is truly sublime. The fish set is magnificently engraved and chased with dolphins and fishes on the business ends of the pieces. All of the handles are decorated with rocailles, trellises, floral and foliate elements. Each piece has such a brilliant shine, photographing the service presented unusual challenges; I've done my best. Suffice it to say, in person this set exceeds expectations. There is a monogram on these pieces: the letters "MB".
Condition is pristine. Lightest to no signs of use, no flaws.
Total weight for the set is 1350 grams.
Dimensions: Fish forks: 7 3/8" long, weight 60 grams Fish knives: 8.75" long, weight 55 grams Dessert forks: 7 1/8" long, weight 55 grams Dessert spoons: 7.25" long, 55 grams. Marks: each piece bears the .950 sterling guarantee (Minevre 1st titre), and the maker's punch for Paul Tallois. The marks may be seen photographed on the 1st picture; for your convenience and verification.
