Offered for your consideration is this very beautiful Antique French Sterling Silver Dinner Fork Set from Early 20th Century. True to the classic style of French sterling silver luxury flatware from this era, these 12 Dinner Forks have really long tines, and surprisingly heavy in weight. Gorgeously decorated with shell motifs and finely contoured on the handles. Elegant interlaced monogram MD on four of the spoons, and LB on one.
Hallmarked 1. French Michel-Ange No.1 mark, guaranteed at least 950/1000 purity sterling silver (higher than standard 925 sterling!) used in Paris between 1819-1838. 2. Control mark of City of Paris. 3. Silversmith Victoire Josephine GODOT, active at 380 rue St. Denis in Paris, between 1832-1836. One of the fork has different mark of Francois-Dominique DAUDIN, active at 21 Place Thionville, between 1800-1840. 4. French Minerva No.1 Mark, probably re-controlled on public auction in the past.
