.

This is a lovely hors d'oeuvre set for 6 of 2 piece place settings - oyster forks and spreaders (knives). Each of the 3-tine forks measures about 6 1/2" in length and each spreader, with it's gold-colored, vermeil blade, measures about 7 1/8" long. All 12 pieces are stamped with the initials 'A-P', '800' and what looks to be a Toucan with a 'w' on one side and a '4' on the other. The set dates from the early 1900s and was originally acquired by an Austrian couple while travelling in South America. The overall condition is very good, though there are a few bumps among them and some wear and light surface scratches/rubs. The case is quite functional inside and in fair condition on the outside ...... $375.00
