Mother of Pearl Love

I am a huge fan of mother of pearl flatware.  I have quite a few serving pieces that come out on special occasions but have never found any flatware that I could afford.  But a couple of weeks ago, while searching ebay, I found a set of knives and forks that were priced so reasonably that I thought for sure I would be outbid.  Nope!  I recently picked up this package in the mail.

And this is what I saw when I unwrapped the roll.

Aren’t they beautiful?  The vendor thought they were at least 80 years old and had never been used.

I’m not sure about the never been used part as they have a few blemishes beyond simple tarnish.

The bands are sterling silver.

And the mother of pearl is so lovely!

I’m looking forward to having an occasion to set the table with these gorgeous pieces!
