ALL KINDS OF SMALLS AND LARGER ANTIQUES AND VINTAGE ITEMS. I HAVE SOME MORE GOLD AND SILVER TO LIST NOW. MOST ARE MARKED AS STERLING OR GOLD AND HAVE TESTED AS SUCH.
ALSO, MOST OF THE SILVER HAS AT LEAST SOME TARNISH OR PATINA ON IT. I WILL LEAVE THE POLISHING TO THE TASTES OF THE NEW OWNER.
ALL OF THESE ARE FROM NON-SMOKING SOURCES , UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE. HERE IS A NICE PARTIAL SET OF 45 PIECES OF CHRISTOFLE SILVERPLATED FLATWARE PIECES. 36 OF THE PIECES ARE IDENTICAL IN PATTERN; WITH ONE OF THE KNIVES AND THE TWO SALAD TYPE SERVING "SPORKS" BEING IDENTICAL TO IT; AND WITH THE LOWER RIGHT PORTION OF 5 TEASPOONS AND 2 PRONG FORK MATCHING EACH OTHER PLUS FOUR OF THE TEASPOONS ARE ALSO MONOGRAMMED WITH WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE "C over S" or "S over C" (BUT PLEASE USE YOUR OWN JUDGMENT ON THIS). I WAS TOLD BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER THAT THIS SET MAY BE FROM AS EARLY AS THE 1840's, BUT I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING MORE ABOUT THE PIECES (IT CAME FROM A RECENT ESTATE SALE).I ALSO DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PATTERNS ARE ON THESE BUT ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED ON THE PATTERNS AND ON THE AGE(s). ALL OF THE PIECES SHOW SIGNIFICANT WEAR, BASICALLY BY THE WAY OF SCRATCHES AND SCUFFS (SOME OF WHICH ARE PRETTY HEAVY), AND SOME DINGS & DENTS AS WELL. HOWEVER, THE PIECES ARE STILL QUITE "SILVER" IN APPEARANCE.
GIVEN THEIR AGE(s) AND EXTENSIVE USE (APPARENTLY), THE LOT IS STILL IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, OVERALL. PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS AN OPTICAL ILLUSION ON THE FORKS, DUE TO SHADOWS, BUT THE TINES/PRONGS ARE PRETTY MUCH STRAIGHT (BUT DO TAKE NOTE OF THE LAST PHOTO ON A COUPLE OF THEM). THE PICTURES ARE TO BE CONSIDERED AS PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. PLEASE REVIEW THEM FOR A BETTER IDEA OF VARIETY AND CONDITION, AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.
