All items and photos are the express property of Antiques & Uncommon Treasure.No reproduction without prior written consent. We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. Gorgeous antique French Napoleon III era 24pc table knife set with elegant sterling silver & ebony or ebonized wood handles, a 2pc place setting for twelve in the larger dinner sized and medium luncheon or entremet sized knives with Classical or French Empire style pattern & wonderful condition! Complete and original, with a nod to the unfortunate loss of one handle end cap on a smaller knife.
These all have the original pre-stainless steel blades so they will have a bit of visible age to them but, in my opinion, that really only adds a certain character, some history and elegance. Solid wood handles, either ebony or with an ebonized finish and the sterling silver caps & collars or ferules have a Classical or Empire style to them.A beautiful set and would make a fabulous addition to your fine sterling silver table service. Very good condition, age considered. As mentioned, the blades are pre-stainless so do have some age tarnish and/or corrosion visible. The best way to store them to avoid any further rust or corrosion is by applying a very thin layer of oil, vegetable oil or similar. One of the smaller knives is missing the silver cap on its handle, unfortunate but worth noting. I see no age cracks or splits in the wood. See pictures for individual weights and measurements. We're easy to deal with. Our fine inventory is very important.
