What you get is 12 pieces EACH of a dinner knife, dinner fork, salad fork, teaspoon and tablespoon. Looking at the other listings and knowing nothing about this stuff it's hard to know what this stuff is made of. The consensus on the knives seems to be that the handle is sterling and the blade is stainless steel. But silverplate comes up in the listings as well.
Not a lot of listings for pieces other than the knives. These were something of a surprise in the sense that there was another whole set of sterling flatware, part of which was given to me as a wedding present. So I don't know where this stuff came into the picture, maybe just for those larger get togethers or what. But all of it was in a nice jewelers bag and the knives were wrapped in paper towels two to a towel. The nesting silverware was also wrapped, six per.
No idea why the knives were given special treatment. Some tarnish, mostly of the butt of the knife handles but mostly this stuff looks pretty good.
I have NO idea what the vintage of this stuff is, but I doubt mom added to her silver collection after dad died in the late 80's. Please check out my other listings for more interesting pieces of mom's silver collection. If the functional condition of the piece is known it will be stated in the listing.
