All pieces bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means all are in. 950 silver 95% pure and higher than the.

Very good to excellent condition. Some pieces have very faint scuffs, marks indicative of having been very well cared for and only slight use. As noted above, the asparagus cuff appears to be a replacement but fits in the chest space/fitting perfectly and there is one tiny salt spoon missing.
The chest, as you can see, is also in great shape with a polished brass handle on top, escutcheon and working lock with key.
