A 100 Piece STERLING SILVER FLATWARE SERVICE in KIRK “REPOUSSE”, c. 1924-32
This is a gorgeous, very large, dinner service for 12 in KIRK REPOUSSE. The ornate, raised, and chased floral cutlery pattern was first introduced in 1845, after the tremendous success of the earlier hollowware.
The seven piece place settings include: dinner forks, round blade dinner knives, dinner soups, bouillon spoons, salad/dessert forks, teaspoons and sporks (ice cream spoons).
There are also 16 serving pieces: a carving knife and fork, a sugar shell, a master butter, a gravy ladle, a cold meat fork, a lettuce fork, an asparagus fork, a sardine fork, a tomato slice, a stuffing spoon, a large serving spoon, a berry spoon with a beautiful repousse bowl, a pie lifter and two individual seafood forks that could also be used for serving seafood tidbits or pickles.
Pair of Large Silver Plated 5 Arm Regency Style Candelabras – circa 1910.
A tall pair of large silver plate and crystal four-armed candelabras, with an elevated center candle. The candelabras are decorated in the neoclassical manner, with chased linear and bead decoration, complemented by foliate ornament of acanthus on the cups, arms, columns and bases. Tapered columnar posts, topped with ribbon and laurel swags, support four winding, upturned and crossed arms, topped by cup-shaped foliate candleholders around a matching, elevated, columnar center. Each candleholder has a round bobeche beneath, surrounded by a dozen suspended rondelle and teardrop pendant, faceted crystals.
