This flatware set is beautiful! Of course it has been used, so some pieces have light scratches and an occasional ding, but overall I find it to be in excellent condition. Please look at the photos carefully so you can evaluate the condition of these pieces for yourself.

The .800 pieces are marked with the crescent moon, the crown, and another mark. I photographed the marks so that you silver experts can see them. The following 41 pieces are .800 silver:

(all of the .800 silver pieces are shown in the first photo: the mark for most of these pieces is shown in the sixth photo)

Six 8 1/2" forks (second photo)

Six 10" knives with "rostfrei" blades (third photo)

Six 8 1/2" spoons (fourth photo)

Five 5 1/2" spoons

One 8 5/8" serving spoon

One 6 1/8" butter knife

Six 5 5/8" three-tined forks


Six 5 1/2" spoons (monogrammed "RS") by the same company in a box marked "H. Schwake Goldschmied Stadthagen." (ninth photo)


In a different pattern of .800 silver by a different company (the blade of the knife is marked "J. A. Henckels Solingen Zwillingswerk, Noxida") but still with "FS" monogram:

One 8 1/8" fork

One 10" knife

One 8 1/4" spoon

One 5 3/8" spoon

(seventh photo shows the pattern and eighth photo shows three of the four pieces)


In the same pattern, with the same "FS" monogram are the following 18 pieces which are NOT .800 silver; they are marked "BSF 90", and some say "Platura."

(eleventh photo shows all of these pieces; twelfth photo shows the BSF90 mark)

Six 7 1/4" forks

Six 8 1/4" knives, with blades marked, "Schmachtenberg & Benningen Solingen, Rostfrei."

One 7 7/16" two-tined fork

Five 4 1/16" spoons.
