Sir Christopher Wallace sterling silverware 75p

Quantity available: 1
This sterling set will serve 12 people and it has extra serving pieces. Years and years ago, when we were stocking our antique store, we drove through the east coast. We were lucky enough to be traveling through The Hamptons on a weekend during which there were loads of high quality estate sales. Talk about timing! This boxed set of Wallace Sterling service for twelve was just too good to be true! I believe it to be the Sir Christopher pattern which was manufactured in the late 1930's. In addition to the complete set of 12 salad forks, standard forks, standard knives, butter knives,soup spoons and teaspoons, there are three hostess pieces...One pie or quiche server, one vegetable spoon, plus one other larger soup-type spoon. (Unfortunately, there is no meat fork.)Total 75 pieces. Although I had the best of intentions, once I got it into my home, I couldn't part with it (A downfall to many an antique dealer), so it remained as one of my guilty pleasures and happiest treasures for lo these many years! I can honestly state that I don't entertain much these days, so it's time to find this beauty a wonderful new home, hopefully one where it will be appreciated and happily utilized. Please note that the cutting surfaces of all the knives as well as the quiche server are stainless steel, but the handles of all pieces are solid sterling. Although I want to sell this important part of a multi-family history, I will wait for just the right home to come along; Therefore, I will not be lowering my price, and I appreciate your understanding that fact before you place a bid. (As you can tell by the pictures, the Wallace Silver is in, what I believe to be, its original wooden box.)I will give free shipping (within the US) if you use a check or money order. I have more photos if you want to email me. These have not been polished or cleaned and are sold as is and are vintage used sterling silverware with no visable damage ( normal wear and tear is all you will find on these treasures!).International orders will have to be insured with delivery receipt using bank transfers only..
