If you haven't guessed, I am a consumer of French silver. I gave up on most of the American stuff a long time ago, though I still have some nice American silver. Call me a snob, or a snot, I love French silver!!
I wanted to share this set that I was watching this week; it is a COMPLETE service set; you don't see this often: asparagus, meat, lamb, salad, appetizers, salad, fish. You find these singly but hard to find the whole pattern of pieces together; this one on ebay and circa 1900; sold for around $500.
Such pretty pieces from the French silversmiths!
