So very rare to find a set of 6 enamel forks - DENMARK
This is a lovely rare ART DECO solid sterling silver DESSERT SET consisting of six cake forks was made in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1961 by the illustrious Danish silversmith, Egon Lauridsen who operated from 1936 until 1966. They are in a stunning pattern, are gilded and has gorgeous enamel decoration to front and rear of the stems. Each cake fork measures almost 4 3/4" long and is almost 5/8" across its tines. They are in a lovely ART DECO or MODERNIST pattern. Each fork weighs13.2 grams - making a total weight ofwell over2 1/2troy oz. They are NOT engraved.
They are in very good condition with much less than the usual surface scratching than you'd expect for their age and no dings or dents and with none of the usual wear - SUPERB, near MINT condition. Each is hallmarked on the reverse of the handle with Ela Denmark Sterling 925S showing that they were hallmarked in Denmark in about 1961. I have shown the hallmark so that you can make up your own mind. They come in a black gold tooled leatherette case which is lined with cream silk and black velvet - in very good condition.
