Set of 12 Victorian Tea Spoons and Tongs
Cased cutlery sets were commonly given as presents, particularly wedding presents with the silver cutlery and finer pieces brought out for special occasions or Sunday best.
This is a cased set of twelve silver plated teaspoons and a pair of tongs all with elaborately designed Rococo handles, very typical of the Victorian style. They come presented in a wonderfully over-the-top velvet and silk presentation case. This set would have been owned by a reasonably wealthy household.
The condition is good, the plate is in excellent condition, there are some minor scuffs to the corners of the case. Case closes well.
Dimensions: spoons are 11.5cm long, case measures 24cm x 16.5cm
