I inherited this Sterling Silver Flatware from my mom, who inherited it from my Grandmother and her sister. Because this set has been combined, it consist of 2 patterns, Gorham "Chantilly" (mostly old mark, Pat. 1895) and R.W.S. Co. Mount Vernon Corinthian pattern, (Pat 1891). Two large Chantilly serving pieces are included as well as 7 unique spoons (various companies and patterns), and 7 collectible antique "state" spoons. T are 68 total pieces of Sterling SilverGorham Chantilly, and RWS Corinthian patterns, are very similar in feel and style, and will combine to set a beautiful table for you just as they have for our family over the years. And, since Gorham Chantilly is still widely available, you can add to your silver flatware set easily, a few pieces at a time. This is a very old flatware set. I know that some of it dates back to the 1900's (one of the "misc." spoons says "Christmas 1906". It has been used and enjoyed many times, and although it is in good condition, little scratches, minor dings and blemishes, can be seen on some of the pieces. I do not see any black pits, or rust or anything like that. It is still very beautiful, and you can tell that it has been loved and cared for over the years. I am not a silver expert, but I seem to recall in the 1960's, that mom had the blades on the knives replaced with the modern Stainless blades. The monograms on the handles seem to be a bit worn and faint, so this would make sense. Most of the set is monogramed "H" but t are a couple pieces with oddball monos and a few with no Monograms at all. I did my best to take good photos, but, despite my efforts, the pictures are not as clear as I would have liked. So, Please look at them carefully, and study the list, and feel free to ask any questions you might have. It comes in a pretty walnut stained case that has been slightly "distressed" over time. It has been carefully polished and is in very respectable shape. If you love beautiful antiques and want something a little different from everyone elses, you will appreciate and enjoy this set. And best of all, it's truly affordable at this starting price. Shipping for this item is $18.00 and will be shipped the day after payment is received, within the U.S. only. I accept Paypal only.
