Gorgeous antique French 18k gold on sterling silver "vermeil" flatware set, a 4pc place setting for one with seashell & acanthus accented pattern, mother of pearl handled knife and all in wonderful condition! We're adding a few single and double place settings this week. Dining alone? With all of this quarantine and uncertainty going on, we thought spoiling ourselves in our solitude might be warranted. A gorgeous set here, dessert, entremet or luncheon sized pieces and sure to impress! All pieces bear the post-1838 French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within the marks on fork & spoons means they are in .950 silver under the gold plating (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The Minerva mark on the knife blade has rounded sides and a tiny number "2", meaning it's in .800 (80% pure) or better silver (not uncommon in knife blades with the slightly lower silver content giving them more strength and durability). The silversmith marks on the forks & spoon are for Prevost, Recipon & Cie. (ODIOT successors), Paris circa 1850-1855 and the mark on the knife for Pierre Queille, Paris circa 1894-1906. Spoil yourself!
Very good condition. Just as you see them, free of any notable damage or repairs. As noted, the knife is not a perfect match for the other pieces but close enough and compliments them beautifully. Some wear to the vermeil with silver showing through in a few areas. See pictures for weights and measurements.
