On offer today is a beautiful set of Twelve Pairs of Knives and Forks sterling silver heads and carved Mother of Pearl handles in just pristine condition. As the photos reflect the knives and Forks are a perfect example of what Sheffield Silversmiths could manufacture. All the knives and forks are assayed in Sheffield.
Each knife and fork are fully hallmarked for 1899 with The Lion, Crown, date stamp (g) depicting 1899 .Manufactured by John Sanderson. The handles are in great condition as the images show and look fantastic no splits.
The Knives measure 19CMS and weigh 39 Grammes.
The Forks measure 15.5CMS and weigh 34 Grammes.
This set would grace anyones home. A functional lot in this highly attractive pattern, a great set as a gift and would doubtless cost an awful lot in a retail outlet today.
