Here is a gorgeous Bakelite 2 tone fruit knife dessert set with its original display stand dating to the 1940’s. The set has six knives with serrated edges each having a 2 tone black and yellow Bakelite handle. Each knife measures 6 ½” long by ½” wide and the blades are marked Rostfrei Solingen which means “rust free, stainless steel”. The stand measures 4 ¾” wide by 4 ½” high and the knives sit neatly stacked into the vertical slots that hold each knife blade in place. Originally manufactured in Germany during the 1940’s, it is very clean and in excellent vintage condition. The blades appear almost unused and are shiny with no corrosion or stains. There are no chips or cracks on the handles although 2 knife handles show a small scratch where the blade attaches as shown in the last picture and being mentioned to be accurate. These knife sets are hard to find in this condition and would make a great addition to anyone’s kitchenware collection.
