Item Ref



Wonderful cased dessert suite containing silver and Mother of Pearl handled fruit knives and forks for twelve people, four silver engraved/decorated bowl fruit spoons (all decorated to match,) and two pairs of high quality silverplated nut crackers, all in a superb mahogany fitted cabinet with blue silk and velvet lining. This suite has been assembled with care and thought and the cabinet then made separately to contain these pieces; the cabinet even comes complete with two locking keys. Each piece is English hallmarked silver with the exception of the nutcrackers; these are traditionally made of silverplate as solid silver is too soft for the purpose of cracking nuts efficiently. Quite unique and of the highest quality.
