Elegant antique French 22pc .800 (nearly sterling) to sterling silver silver & solid mother of pearl handled knife set, a 2pc setting for eleven in the RARE larger dinner size AND smaller matching luncheon or entremet size with unmarked silver caps & collars, original pre-stainless steel blades and all in wonderful condition! We have several sets of beautiful old mother of pearl handled knifes but finding the larger dinner sized pieces is quite rare. This set a 2pc place setting for eleven though so, unfortunately, missing one of each from what surely would have been a 12/12 set. The pearl handled pieces really are one of my personal favorites, both for their innate shimmering attractiveness but also the weight in the hand, can't beat them. A lovely set here, heavy solid pearl handles with what are surely sterling silver collars with an Empire style crossed torch & quiver and ribbon & bow pattern. There are no tiny hallmarks on the silver portions, not uncommon with smaller parts. Original steel blades intact, quite unique in shape also. Fabulous, don't miss them! One of two sets that we're adding this week, along with our existing host of the finest antique French and European silver so, be sure to browse some while you're with us. Thanks!
Very good condition. As noted in the images, two of each size is missing from what would have been a complete 24pc set. No chips, cracks, breaks or damage to the pearl handles. The blades are, as noted, pre-stainless steel so do have a bit of age tarnish and/or corrosion possibly. The blades are all marked "Atlas". See pictures for all measurements.
