Showing the French hallmarks or poincon, the Minerve #1, a guarantee marks for finest .900/1000 pure silver, the set was purchased in France many decades ago and dates Napoleon III era, c.1850-70 - they are not all matched, but matched by the theme of swords. I am unable to make out the silversmiths, but the set will compliment many patterns of elegant French Sterling silver flatware and the sword motif is a longstanding tradition in these, and hard to find.  I have amassed a group of 7. They're picks, used in cooking and serving cuts of meat, sometimes alternating with vegetables, and are really fun to use. Makes for an added layer of elegance. We have various sets, a lot dating to late 1700s to earliest 1800s, and often have mix-matched them at the same table, sometimes by couples. Beautiful and very useful, this set would date c.1910-20. Threeare 8 1/4" long, the others are about 11" long They're shown on one of my plates, which is a prop and does not go with the set. 7 pieces.

Very good to excellent condition, polished and designed beautifully, sharp and ready to use in cooking and serving elegant meals. These are 8 1/4" to 11"  long. You're buying the group of 7.
