Victorian Fruit and Dessert Boxed Set

Victorian Fruit and Dessert Boxed Set

$295.00

The Victorian era, named after England's Queen Victoria, lasted from the 1830's to the turn of the 20th century and was an era of abundance and beauty. An example of this abundance can be found by looking no further than a proper Victorian table setting with its myriad of distinct serving and cutlery pieces, including asparagus forks, (both serving and individual), bon bon spoons and tongs, lettuce forks, fish slicers, butter picks, berry and bacon forks, cheese scoops, cucumber servers and a host of spoons - salt, demitasse, egg, bouillon, cream soup, grapefruit and orange - the list goes on and on. 

From Victorian England, we are pleased to be able to offer this elegant Fruit or Dessert Knife and Fork Set in its original fitted wooden presentation box.  With handles of ivorine, chased sterling silver ferrules and delicate engravings embellishing the silverplated knife blades and forks, this set will be a wonderful addition to your table.  Originally intended for use with a fruit or dessert course, this set is also ideal for appetizers, salads, a light lunch, even breakfast - any time the proportions of a dinner knife and fork are too large for the course or meal being served.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good antique condition.  Box set measures 9" in length. Knives measure 8" long, Forks 7" long.

Learn More About Ivorine

Ivorine is a name often given to celluloid. Celluloid was invented in 1862 and is generally regarded to be the first thermoplastic. It was useful for creating less costly jewelry, jewelry boxes, hair accessories and many items that would earlier have been manufactured from ivory, horn or other expensive animal products. It was often referred to as "Ivorine" or "French Ivory". It was also used for dressing table sets, dolls, picture frames, charms, hat pins, buttons, buckles, stringed instrument parts, fountain pens, cutlery handles and kitchen items. Items made in celluloid are collectible today and increasingly rare in good condition. Celluloid is still used today for the production of table tennis balls and guitar picks.
