Condition is good used, with no major damage to note. The gilding is still incredibly bright, and the spoons have not been polished with respect to the golden patina they have developed. The case is a little shabby but functional, with the clasp snapping tightly. A beautiful set from a renown maker, perfect for the fastidious collector. Each spoon measures 22.5cm long, with the silver weighing in at 143gms in total.
The boxed set weighs in at 420gms. To see my other items! If you would like to view this item or any other, please don't hesitate to contact me.
