A fine silver cutlery set in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Each silver piece has silver marks which are clear and easy to read (some pieces have different dates and makers). The box is very good condition, there are 4 small pin prick marks where a nameplate has been removed (see photo). The 5 piece carving set and 2 egg spoons are missing. There is a very slight variation in the length of the teaspoons. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
