About

This set includes: 12 knives, 8 1/2", 12 forks, 7 1/4", 12 salad forks, 6 5/8", 12 teaspoons, 5 5/8", 12 cream soup spoons, 6 3/8", 12 hollow handle butter spreaders, all-sterling, 6 1/4". Includes bonus brand new flatware storage chest. Excellent condition, with no monograms. This set will be beautifully professionally polished and sealed in individual plastic sleeves prior to shipping. Scarce pattern! Possessing a long history and strong aesthetics, Danish silver didn't truly come into its own until the mid-late 18th century, as the industrialization that was sweeping the western world came to Denmark as well. As manufacturing made products both easier to produce and more readily available, cities such as Copenhagen rapidly grew and prospered. The workforce started to change, and although a new middle class was created, tradesmen were less in demand, which in turn weakened the existing guild systems in place. This helped the Trade Act of 1862 to pass, which eased up the regulations around setting up ones own business. Now silversmiths and goldsmiths, after completing their apprenticeship and passing a final test, could set up their own shops with little difficulty. This suited the growing affluence among the middle class well. Ready to adopt the trappings of the upper class they could not afford before, there was great interest among the people to be able to own silver teapots, cups, toast racks, and other hollowware items: in short, the trappings of the upper class they aspired to. During the times and at its forefront, three major companies led the way: Peter Hertz, Anton Michelsen, and A. N. Dragsted. 100% satisfaction guaranteed! We buy silver. Please inquire.
