Elegant antique French hallmarked sterling silver 4pc hors d'oeuvre or condiment serving implement set with acanthus accented pattern, interlaced "LM"(?) monograms, original fitted box and all in wonderful condition! A gorgeous set, don't you think! Four pieces consisting of two forks, reticulated spoon and knife. All bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks designate them as being in .950 silver (95% pure so above the .925 standard for sterling silver). The silversmith marks are for Alphonse Debain, Paris circa 1883-1911. A magnificent set, one you'll love to get out and use at every occasion.
Very good to excellent condition. Some faint surface scuffs indicative of light use. No bends, breaks or repairs to any. The box in fine shape, some signs of age and has an embossed label inside and paper label on bottom that reads "Maison Fondee en 1785, Servan, Joaillerie Horlogerie, Bordeaux". See pictures for weights and measurements.
