Vintage / antique French sterling silver salad and carving set made in France around 1900 and marked simply "Paris" on blade. The handles bear the French sterling silver (.950 pure silver) Minerva markings indicating it was for domestic sale and not intended for export. The salad serving set fork and spoon are each 11 3/8" overall length, for the carving set: 12 1/8" knife and 10 1/2" fork and 7 3/4" for the overall length of the girot. Really excellent condition on this set, blade of knife is very very full, some light pepperspots but no defects, fork and girot are very clean and free from plating damage the tips of the tines are free from dings. Horn on fork and spoon is very very clean, some light hairlines on the fork but nothing of stuctural damage, not even surface crazing.
Comes with original boxes, photos to be added, also in excellent condition.
