Item specifics

Composition: Sterling Silver Type: Flatware - Sets
Maker: Towle Age: 1900-1940

Hi all. I am selling these for an elderly neighbor who is moving to a smaller home. There is another sterling flatware set going up for auction as well as a few other antique & vintage pieces. They are both in their 90's and all of these pieces have been in storage for over 50 years, so their memories of where and when the pieces were acquired are hazy. I will give you all the information I have, please feel free to ask questions before you bid. Additional pictures can be provided if requested. All items are sold "as is" , shipped USPS Priority Mail, insured, and returns are accepted ONLY if the item(s) are not as described. Items must be returned in the original packaging and shipped priority mail, insured, buyer assumes all return shipping costs. I am happy to combine shipping whenever possible.


I have not cleaned any of the silver as it was stored in protective cloth bags. All of the pieces show normal polishing and usage wear. There is some light tarnish around the knife blades where they meet the handles and there are some rough edges on the blades. Other than those few small issues, the set is in beautiful shape.

This set was also her grandmothers. It was also acquired in Atlanta, Georgia. She was given this set by her grandmother in the late 30's to early 40's, the actual age is unknown. This 42 piece flatware set is marked TOWLE STERLING Pat 1937 and "Chippendale" (see pic). All of the  pieces are marked this way with the exception of the dinner knives which are marked  steel blade, silver plated.. The total weight of the silver is 4 lbs, 2 oz. I do not know how that converts to troy.  This set is a service for 6 (missing 1 dinner fork) with  Hostess pieces. It includes:

6 salad forks - 6 1/2"
5 dinner forks - 7 1/2"
6 butter knives - 6"
6 dinner knives - 9"        marked: stainless blade silver plated
6 iced tea spoons - 8"
6 teaspoons - 6"
3 Lg. Serving Spoon - 8 1/2"
2 Lg. Tablespoons/Serving Spoons - 6 1/2 "
1 Ladle - 7"
1 Sugar Spoon - 6"

I pay insurance costs on all domestic shipments. :)
