The box shows wear on the outside. There is an oval gold metal label on the top of the box that is scratched. The box opens and closes properly.The knives and forks are all hallmarked J. Y crown, lion, v which indicates they were made between 1913 to 1914. This is a heavy box weighing 5 lbs. The knives are beautifully etched with flowers and leaves.
The knives measure 8 in length. On the backside of 2 of the knives you will see some spoting. Each fork measures 6 3/4 in length. The tips of the tines and knives are sharp. A gorgeous find for someone.
