This is an incredible three-piece silverplate carving set in the ornate 1892 Art Nouveau-influenced pattern Grecian by International. The pattern is quite striking and aesthetically pleasing. Included is the following: one 14" carving knife, one 11" carving fork, and one 13 knife sharpener.The knife is marked By Appointment Thomas Turner & Co. To the Late King George V, Sheffield, England. " The fork is marked "Royal Brand Cutlery Co. Sheffield England, " and the sharpener is marked "Latham & Owen, Sheffield England. This is unusual, considering pieces of this pattern were often marked with 1847 Rogers Bros. The pattern was in limited distribution, and is extremely rare to find in modern times. Ornamental eating utensils, especially non-essential pieces, were indicators of status and wealth for middle-class households at this time. While the set has noticeable wear from age and use, it is in acceptable condition and would make an ideal addition to an elegant mealtime occasion. Feel free to message me with questions.
