Antique cutlery silverware flatware in original fitted chest. 950 (better than Sterling ) silver knives forks and spoons. 108 pieces made by Andre Aucoc, Paris, France, active 1887-1911.

Measurements: 108 knives, forks and spoons:

12 Dinner knives approximately 10.25 inches (26cm) long.

18 Luncheon knives approximately 8 3/8 inches (21cm) long.

18 Dessert/salad knives approximately 8 3/8 inches (21cm) long.

Canteen of cutlery. Beautiful pattern of sea shells and scrolls on both sides of each utensil. Backs have a finely engraved monogram. Extremely ornate monogram could be LL or LS. The Dinner and Luncheon knives have stainless steel blades (to provide enough strength to cut meat, they had to be stainless steel). The other knives, forks and spoons are all entirely silver. Luncheon and dessert/salad knives look identical besides the steel/silver blades.

There are a number of layers to the original, fitted chest.

Marks: each piece is well hallmarked. The knives have A. AUCOC PARIS on every blade; silver and maker's marks appear on every item - the handles of all knives, the blades, tynes and bowls of the other pieces. Marks are a maker's mark (a chicken in a lozenge) and Minerva head, French silver mark.

Condition: minor surface wear commensurate with age. Outside of chest is slightly worn as is to be expected, but the inside is in very good shape. Please see enlarged pictures for details and don't hesitate to ask questions - we will do our best to answer.
