Silk and Sage Design has blossomed in Austin, Texas to help you explore your creativity through custom painted finishes. We sell locally-sourced vintage and antique items, as well as refinished and painted pieces!
We fell in love with this flatware set at first sight. With the engraved floral designs on each fork and knife plus Bakelite handles, this is a truly unique set. There are 5 forks and 6 knives to the set, so you can make 5 complete fork and knife pairs while having one leftover to use a single butter/ jam/ dip spreader! Hallmarks suggest these are antique British electroplated silver- may date even to the late 19th century, however we are listing as early 20th century since it's hard to determine.
The metal is most likely electroplated silver (due to the small EP hallmark) is a bit tarnished currently and hasn't been fully cleaned as to preserve the nature in which we acquired these. Can easily be shined up once purchased!
Measures approx. 8.5x1" per knife and 7x1" per fork (at longest and widest points).
Some natural wear and score marks are visible on the metal and on Bakelite handles. One knife has a tiny, barely noticeable chip on the handle, and another has a small bend at the knife tip. As with all vintage and antique items, marks of age only enhance their unique appeal.
