This preloved set comes to us out of a prominent local estate and. Includes everything one needs to entertain for eight!
It includes a mix of old and new marks (predominantly pre-1950), as the original set was added to over the years. Some of the pieces are incredibly scarce and almost impossible to find, as they were discontinued by Reed and Barton long ago. This set includes the following.
8x 4-piece place setting 32 pcs. Total , each set including a dinner knife (9 5/8 inches), dinner fork (7 7/8"; old marks), salad fork (6"), and teaspoon (6 5/8). 8x Butter knives 6 1/4.

1x Olive fork (5 7/8 inches). Everything is in excellent condition. Aside from varied light tarnishing as shown, the only condition issue we can find is in the very tip of the lip of the youth spoon, which has a barely noticeable ding in the tip of the lip, something which any competent jeweler should be able to straighten out with minimal effort.
