This is a straight (= all items by the same maker and period), one-owner Set which has been carefully preserved. All parts of this Design Silverware were hand-made in Germany with a strict quality control and high manufacturing standards. While elsewhere in the first third of the 20th Century machine-made Silverware after older designs were flooding the markets this European Silversmith continued to produce fine, handmade Silverware with unique designs.
