Vintage French Cutlery 24 pces, 12 persons
I am presenting you yet another fabulous vintage French Cutlery set. This set dates to the end of the 1890’s and is therefore classified as antique. In fabulous condition, each piece is marked as ’84 grms’ and ‘metal alliage blanc’. The set consists of 12 large Forks, L 21cm and 12 large Spoons, L 21.5cm. Each piece is beautifully adorned on both sides with ribbon, scrolls and twigs with small olives. The set weighs 2140 grms. Postage from France included.
Vintage sets often did not include any knives. Cutlery sets were given as wedding gifts. To have knives included, met with superstition. Giving the gift of knives, one thought that it would sever the bond between the married couple. That is why you often find sets of boxed bakelite handled knives separately in antique stores. If you wish to complement this set with a set of boxed knives, let me know and I can source them for you.
