A gorgeous antique set of Mother of Pearl and sterling silver handle fruit knives by National Silver Co. This flatware set consists of 6 fruit knives. The come in their original box. The box shows signs of age as expected but protects them, displays and shows their appropriate age.
The knives measure 6 5/8" long and are each marked sterling on the handle. The blades are marked N.S. Co for the National Silver Company. We have pointed out the sterling section on the handle. Each knife is marked "STERLING" For over 100 years old this is a lovely set and displays beautifully.
This set is Fair to Very Good Condition. The blades are clean, bright, sharp and unaltered. 5 of the six knives have good pearl handles with mild discoloration in spots (our flash makes the discoloration brighter see all photos) 1 knife has a smooth chip on the blade we have pointed it out. We did not notice on our first inspection it is hard to catch.
