Victorian Silverplate 3-piece Fruit Set with Grape Shears

Victorian Silverplate 3-piece Fruit Set with Grape Shears

$225.00

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 offer this elegant Fruit Serving Set. With exquisite details throughout, this set will be a wonderful addition to your table. In its original presentation box, the set includes a pair of matching fruit serving spoons with delicately gold-washed bowls embossed with fruits and nuts. Completing the set is a lovely pair of grape shears with elegantly engraved handles.

Delight in the splendor of the Victorian era with this magnificent service!


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Box measures 6" x 10.5". Serving Spoons measure 9" in length, Grape Shears 6.5".

Learn More About Fruit Serving Spoons

These sparkling tabletop treasures were used for serving fresh fruit (think ripe, red strawberries with heavy cream!) and would have been found on any well-laid Victorian table.

The bowls of the spoons are all intricately embossed with an abundant assortment of flowers and fruits - berries, grapes, melons and pears - while the handles of the spoons vary in classic patterns to compliment the cutlery services of their era. 

A wonderful addition to your silver collection, let them beautify your breakfast table, then bring them back out after dinner to dip into meringues, sorbets, and ice cream!

Learn More About Grape Shears

Specifically designed for elegantly cutting grape stalks at the table, the handles are longer than the blades, so that one could insert the blades deeply into a cluster of grapes. The tips of the shears were purposefully blunt, so that they won't puncture the fruit. The patterns of grape shears varied widely, from detailed grapevine motifs to classic designs that would complement the rest of a cutlery set.

Grape shears may be an antiquated idea for some - but they are as practical as ever, with grapes being a classic accompaniment to cheese. Adding a pair of decorative grape shears to a cheese board along with a cluster of grapes is sure to be a detail that will not go unnoticed!
