A rare and beautiful set of fish knives and forks for six. They are silver plated and decorated in a beautiful Art Nouveau pattern. Made by renowned German tableware manufacturer WMF.

WMF is the abbreviation for Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik, which in English means Wurtemberg Metalware Factory. The box is black leather and lined with light blue fabric. 

Each knife and fork is marked "WMFN I/O". WMFN is an older mark used between about 1886 and 1903, and I/O indicates the normal thickness of silver over the base metal (usually brass).

DIMENSIONS:
24.5 cm x 38 cm (box)

CONDITION:
Good - The box is worn on the edges which is expected, and is in very good antique condition still closing properly. The fabric on the inside is only very lightly stained by the metal and is in good condition. Each knife and fork is in good to very good condition, they are not bent or warped, and have only light scratches visible on close inspection. Only a few show minor wear to the silver plate where the base metal is coming through.

I’ve never been a fan of vintage / second hand shopping until I walked into Greystones Antiques. The products are in immaculate condition and all so beautiful - I went to pick up one chair but honestly I was overwhelmed with how much I wanted to buy (and left with much more than I expected to)!!!

Amazing and friendly service. I purchased a 1930's Vanity Dressing Table and Mirror. The delivery was easy and this piece is exactly what I was looking for. It's in amazing condition and it was a very fair price!
