Circa 1830-1840 and circa 1870, two generation set, Austrian. This amazing service for 24 will perfectly compliment any style of decor from antique to modern. Most likely from a Petite Noble family distantly in the Habsburg line of succession, this service has two different ornate monograms, each featuring a five point crown. Started originally by one generation then expanded by another later, this accounts for the different crests and two types of dinner forks. The weight and scale of the pieces is marvelous and the quality superb. It is rare to find a service of this age so complete and in excellent condition.

The set includes 24 dinner knifes, 24 luncheon knives, 48 dinner forks (24 four tine and 24 three tine), 36 salad forks, 24 fish forks, 24 fish knives, 24 dessert knifes, 24 soup spoons, 24 dessert spoons, 21 teaspoons, 24 ice cream spoons, 24 demitasse spoons, and 14 ramekin forks. The serving pieces include 2 large soup ladles, 2 asparagus tongs, 4 large serving sets each with fork and spoon, 2 salad sets, 2 gilt bowl dessert sets, 2 gilt bowl serving spoons, 2 serving spoons with square bowls, 1 oval gravy ladle, 4 square gravy ladles, 1 small soup ladle, 2 two piece fish sets, 2 sugar tongs, 4 serving forks, 2 meat spades, and 3 salt spoons. Excellent condition through out.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "This service came from a castle in Austria on the Swiss border."
