A beautiful French Antique Silver 12 piece Oyster Forks by ‘Maître Orfèvre’ Victor Leneuf.
This set comes in its original box, which shows light scruff marks on the outside of it, but is otherwise in very good condition.
The pieces are etched in the Renaissance Style with a beautiful guilloche design on the handles as well as a medallion waiting for its owner’s monogram.
The handles are delicately carved with an acanthus leaf knot of the upper part, and another larger one decorating the lower part of the handle.
The forks are great to hold with a perfect balance.
All pieces are in great state no losses or marks, just Gorgeous!
