Dinner forks and spoons for 6, in the ravishing Renaissance pattern offered in a 62 piece set. I thought I'd offer these separately, as they are over and above the 5 piece place settings for 12 people. This way, those of you who adore the pattern and want it on a smaller scale, can be happy also. The pattern is extremely rare and these pieces are superbly crafted; highest quality work. A gorgeous floral foliate design decorates the upper handles, all on a hand patterned ground. And the backs also have floral decorations with exquisite mascarons on the tips. The upper handles have very classy little "collars". These pieces are nearly perfect, having just got back from my silversmith for professional polishing. The textured grounds are supposed to be dark, to bring out the decorative elements of the pattern. The tines are in good condition. Applied interlaced monogram: "OA". One nice thing about applied monograms; you can remove them and replace with your own! Simply stunning and wonderful set.
Dimensions: the spoons and forks are 8.5" long. the spoons weigh 90 grams, the forks 85 grams. Total weight for the 12 pieces a hefty 1050 grams. Each piece bears the .950 sterling guarantee, the Minerve 1st titre, as well as the maker's punch for Henin & Cie.
