Young Love by Heirloom sterling - Now Oneida

No monograms

I am thrilled to be able to offer a starter set of sterling flatware that is in truly unused condition. Each piece is still sealed in the factory wrappers... untouched for as long as 30 years. The exquisitely sweet and simple design is still as crisp and clean as the day this sterling was manufactured.

The pattern symbolizes the sweet simplicity of young love. What a marvelous wedding present... maybe an anniversary, or even a graduation gift. An untarnished promise of the future.

What a fantastic offering just before Valentine's Day!

I decided against removing any of the pieces for pictures, instead preserving the integrity of my statement that these are truly unused and unopened. One wrapper was slightly punctured in order for someone to take a closer look at the pattern but the hole wasn't enough to remove the piece so I just taped over the hole. Other than that, none of the other wrappers have been touched.

Now... to the particulars. As mentioned above, this set is a starter service for 4 and the pattern is still in production but occasionally, t are relatively inexpensive listings on Ebay for companion settings and service pieces.

4 Knives - 9 inches

4 Forks - 7 1/2 inches

4 Salad or dessert forks - 6 5/8 inches

4 Teaspoons - 6 1/8 inches

4 Round bowl soups - 6 3/8 inches

4 butter spreaders

1 Sugar shell

Sorry, t is no case for this sterling but a used one can usually be picked up in second hand stores or garage sales for a virtual song. BUT... if this is a gift, why not just buy a new one and make your gift from the heart even more spectacular.

Please view the pictures carefully. I generally take my photographs outside in sunlight to accurately depict the colors and conditions of the items I am offering. If you see any discolorations or other anomalies that would indicate damage, it is either the sun, the clouds, the trees, or me.

I never know what the Ebay shipping calculator is going to come up with. But the shipping charges will be a flat $12.95 for Priority Mail shipping (plus insurance) in the lower 48 states. Alaska and Hawaii would be higher. And overseas shipping is strictly dependent on destination... if the winning bidder is in a country other than the US... please wait for a corrected invoice.

Due to the value of this listing, insurance is required.

I try to fully and faithfully disclose any irregularities I find but I am far from perfect and some things may escape my detection. Also, when damage (no matter how minute) I try to make sure that it is clearly depicted in the photos.

I believe that I have described the above auction offering accurately and in detail. Please consult the photographs or Email me with any questions.

My word is my bond. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 3 business days to arrange return and a refund of your purchase price. Shipping charges are not refundable.

The sterling that I am currently listing are not my property and as such, I am unable to make a 'deal' or entertain a 'Best Offer' scenario. They belong to a friend who is in the precious metals business. He has a warehouse that is stockpiled with sterling items that he has purchased over the last 28 years of business, including more than 100 different silver flatware sets. With the soaring price of silver, he had decided to send them all to the smelter to be melted down.

Instead, I convinced him to let me try to offer them on Ebay so that they would not be destroyed.
