All bear the post-1878 French Minerve or Minerva hallmarks, the tiny number 1 within those marks means theyre in. 950 silver under the thick gold plating 95% pure silver, higher than the.925 standard for sterling silver. Silversmith marks are for Henin & Cie. The blades of the vermeil knives are also marked Racine, Marseille. Ill see if I can go back through our records to find the pattern name, a rare one though. Very good to excellent condition. A bit of tarnish visible near tops of handles where they meet the blades on a few. Im pretty certain that the stainless steel blades are a newer restoration/improvement as they surely wouldve had the pre-stainless blades originally from their age.
