WHAT A LOVELY ANTIQUE SILVER CANTEEN OF GERMAN CUTLERY.
IT IS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY.
AND IS A SIMPLY HUGE SERVICE,COMPRISING 140 PIECES IN ALL.
And would be ideal for use this Spring....
Here we have a quite exceptional and quite lovely mainly 12 place setting of German 800 hallmarked silver cutlery of quite superb gauge and weight.Hallmarks are deep and clear.
This is a a truly wonderful lot well worth owning and comprises 140 pieces in all.
I deemed it too good to just scrap and have spent ages hand cleaning the majority of the pieces.
The condition is very good indeed and it has been used seldom.
All are stamped 800 and it is thus most likely German in origin.
This is a lovely antique lot and a must have.It dates to circa 1930 i would imagine.
A really delightful set!

8 dessert forks- 6.875 inches in length-314 grams combined

Pattern is most pleasing on the eye.
Each piece is unengraved and always has been,definitely no erasures either.
