The set is decorated with charming floral scrolls and rose chutes as well as caps in the shape of seashells, very delicately rendered.
Each piece bears both the Minerva 1 Hallmark as well as the Makers Mark. Unfortunately the Makers Mark is too erased to be identified.
The style is charming and can compliment any lovely table!
The fork and knives are perfectly balanced and very pratical.
There are 12 forks and 12 knives. The set is originally devised for dessert service, but can also be used for appetizers or even cheese service.
The set is presented in its original box.
The forks measure 6.7 inches.
The knives measure 7.1 inches.
The Hallmark is Minerve 1 -1st title (950/1000)- Hence 1838 to 1919 – Paris
The Makers Mark is too erased for us to be able to identify with certainty.
The style however points to around the 1880s/1890s.
