Lot Of 9 Serving Pieces In Holmes & Edwards 1938 Danish Princess Pattern:
This is a lot or set of 9 vintage matching flatware serving pieces, specifically,
1 jelly server with pointed edge, 6⅜" long
1 sugar or berry spoon, 6" long
2 master butter knives, each just over 6¾" long
2 casserole serving spoons with cut-out pierced bowls, each 8⅝" long
1 plain casserole serving spoons, 8⅝" long
1 buffet (cold meat) serving fork, 8⅞" long
1 small knife (youth knife?), 7⅜" long
The pattern is called DANISH PRINCESS. The set was manufactured by HOLMES & EDWARDS INLAID - I.S. (INTERNATIONAL SILVER COMPANY) and it dates back to 1938. There are no monograms on any of the servers.
This is a relatively heavy, very substantial set of silver - and, according to my silverware book, a very commonly collected pattern as well. It's really lovely, with a sort of late classic Art Deco shape, consisting of a beaded band and flowing acanthus leaves at the end of each handle (see photos below). The set is in overall very good to excellent condition, with only gentle wear throughout. There's NO silver loss, NO pitting, NO dark or worn spots, and absolutely NO heel marks - which is remarkable for such old pieces of silver! All shine very brightly, as illustrated in the photos below. You can place this flatware on your table as soon as you remove it from it's wrappings.
The burnished silver shine on these is awesome...
NOTE: In the photo directly below, any lines and dark spots on the flatware, particularly in the spoon bowls, are actually NOT on the flatware. What you're seeing is the reflection of a telephone cable high above my patio, as well as shadows of tree branches and windows and houses and cloud formations from the early afternoon Michigan spring sun.
