WALLACE SILVER COMPANY
SUBSTANTIAL, YET EXQUISITE
EACH PIECE IS BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED IN THE HAND.
Rich with ornamentation, the Grande Baroque flatware set by Wallace Silver is a perfect example of French refinement in luxurious sterling silver. If purchased new today at Macy’s, for example, the cost of 81 standard pieces is 24,000.00. That being said…. It is my pleasure to offer this sterling silver service for 12 with 8 serving pieces.
Designed by Master Silversmith William S. Warren and presented for the first time by Wallace Silver Company in 1941.
HEAVY, OLD STERLING SILVER
This set was a 1969 wedding present. I am selling this for the original owner who has fallen on harder times. Because of the circumstances, there will be no returns past seven days of delivery.
12 Knives with Stainless Blades (9 Inches)
12 Forks (7-1/2 Inches)
12 Salad Forks (6-1/2 Inches)
12 Cream Soup Spoons (6-1/8 Inches)
24 Teaspoons (6-3/16 Inches)
1 Sugar Spoon (6-1/4 Inches)
1 Cream Ladle (5-7/8 Inches)
1 Pie and Cake Server with Stainless Blade (11 Inches)
1 Master Butter Knife with Notch and Stainless Blade (6-5/8 Inches)
1 Cold Meat Serving Fork (8-1/8 Inches)
1 Pierced Serving Spoon (8-3/4 Inches)
2 Large Serving Spoons (8-3/4 Inches)
1 Pickle Fork with 2 Tines (5-3/8 Inches)
Unless noted, all pieces are Sterling Silver; blades on the knives, butter server and pie and cake server are stainless.
SOME SURFACE SCRATCHES AND SOME TINY SPOTS ON THE STAINLESS BLADES AS CONSISTENT WITH VINTAGE FLATWARE. THE SUGAR SPOON HAS A ROUGH SPOT ON THE EDGE OF THE BOWL AS IF SOME ONE HIT IT AGAINST A JAR LID. ALL DETAILS AND WALLACE HALLMARK ARE CRISP AND CLEAN. ALL STAINLESS IS VERY SHINY. SET HAS NOT BEEN POLISHED BY OWNER. WAS KEPT IN THE ORIGINAL SILVERWARE CHEST. THAT CHEST WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE SALE.
One of the nice advantages of this set is the extra dozen teaspoons. Twelve clean sterling silver spoons are always ready to serve coffee with dessert.
Insurance will be paid by Seller for the amount of the sale.
