Gorgeous antique French hallmarked sterling silver 4pc hors d'oeuvre or condiment serving implement set with foliate or acanthus accented raised medallions, interlaced "MM"(?) monograms, original fitted box and all in wonderful condition! A beautiful set, don't you think! Four pieces consisting of a pate scoop or spatula, fork and reticulated spoon & spatula. All bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks designate them as being in .950 silver (95% pure and above the .925 standard for sterling silver). The silversmith marks are for Philippe Berthier, Paris circa 1841-1851. A wonderful set, one you'll love to get out and use at every occasion.
Very good condition. Some faint surface scuffs indicative of light use. No bends, breaks or repairs to any. The box is also in great shape, age considered, in a brown tooled leather with royal blue interior lining and gilt embossed retailer label reading "Guillot, Bijoutier, Pont de Vaux". See pictures for weights and measurements.
