Antique Veyrat French Parisian Silver Flatware Dinner Service for 12 with Boxes

US$4,995per set

About

This set of antique French gold washed silverware were made by the well-known Veyrat company of Paris France, in circa 1890 in the period Art Nouveau style. There are a combined forty-eight pieces contained in these two leather fitted cases which compose a complete dinner service for twelve; twenty-four knives, twelve forks and twelve spoons. The forks and spoons are solid .950 silver with a gold wash and are very ornately decorated with a swirled filigree details and each is monogramed with period Art Nouveau script. The knives are divided into twelve that have sterling and gold washed blades and twelve with a silver handle and stainless blades. The knife handles have complimentary decorated handles to those of the forks and spoons. Each silver piece is signed with the 'Veyrat' diamond maker's mark and also with the Minerva 1 hallmark identifying the age and silver content as .950. The fitted boxes are also marked on the inside of the lid with the Veyrat of Paris France logo and there is a monogramed plate on the top of each leather bound box. As one can imagine, having a custom made dinner service for twelve made by such an exclusive maker during this period would have been a very costly endeavor and available to only the wealthiest echelon of the French nobility. Unfortunately, the provenance for this set has been lost over the years.
