Description

Includes 56pcs with original wooden case:

  • 8 Knives (no markings) (Stainless steel blade)
  • 8 Forks (3 standard markings + an E in a diamond)
  • 8 Salad Forks 1892? (3 standard markings)
  • 8 Soup Spoons 1880s? (3 standard markings that look a little different)
  • 16 Teaspoons (3 standard markings + an E)
  • 8 Butter Serving Knife (3 standard markings)

All of them, but the knives, also have STERLING & PATENT 1900 on them.

This pattern was supposedly made from 1899-1950, & is now discontinued. This set has the Lion facing left, an anchor, & a G on each piece.
With that being said, some of the marks are somewhat conflicting, & made these a little difficult to date.
The anchors (some rounded/some pointy) & lions (some thinner than the others) seem to vary, but the G is the same on all.
The E is supposed to represent the year – which would be 1872. The E in a diamond. – couldn’t find that one.

Regardless, this is an amazingly beautiful design, & a perfect addition to any dining table.
