I put this set together a number of years ago. The set first came out in I believe the 1880's. It consists of four pieces, a knife, fork, spoon and the much more rare food pusher. The knife depicts Little Red Riding Hood being confronted by the wolf; the fork has Little Bo Peep looking for her sheep and the spoon and food pusher show Jack & Jill at the moment of Jack's disastrous fall. Jill is not yet tumbling after. None of these pieces are monogrammed. The knife fork and spoon are in near pristine condition and the food pusher has been lovingly used. Having seen pictures of the original issue knife on eBay, I suspect the knife is from a subsequent issue. I am fairly sure the food pusher is original. The fork and spoon's marks are the same as the pusher; however, I cannot prove when they were made. I have never seen the whole set offered and I have seen only one food pusher offered on ebay over the last few years. This is a chance to obtain a very rare set of Tiffany sterling. See the picture on page 265 in William Hood's "Tiffany Silver Flatware". The gold color is due to photographer error. They are silver colored. We do not close listings early, having learned the hard way. If you want it, put in a low bid early and then snipe to your hearts content. Please contact us with your questions and please check upcoming listings for some really neat silver. We do not accept credit cards. Personal checks, money orders and PayPal are fine. Unless we know you, your check must clear before we ship. Shipping and insurance must be recalculated for foreign shipments. AFTER A DISCUSSION WITH DR. CHARLES CURB AND PHYLLIS TUCKER, I HAVE DETERMINED THESE ITEMS ARE FROM A LATER ISSUE THAN THE ORIGINAL. I HOPE THAT DOESN'T DASH TOO MANY HOPES.
