Don’t let it’s tatty box fool you – this is one of my most beautiful vintage finds!

Underneath the damaged lid you’ll find a row of delicate fish knives and forks.

I love the fact that the set is complete (which is rare), that it has it’s guarantee (very rare) and that all but one is still protected by it’s original paper cover (unheard of!).

The metal work is delicately patterned and the handles are a stunning mother of pearl.

It’s hard to decide whether this set is so beautiful that it should be used all the time or so beautiful that it should never be used!

    This is wonderful. I have something similar that came from a dear aunt. I’d say use it. We use all our vintage china regularly. It’s too much of a shame not to

      I think you’re right – we use all of our china too. there aren’t many heirlooms in our family because there’s so many of us!

    This is an amazing find. I think you should use it everyday, something that pretty deserves to be shown off x

      I’m inclined to agree with you I think – I just don’t want the lovely paper covers to go missing. It’s amazing to find a set like this. x
