Comments: What could be better than an estate offering of Tiffany sterling flatware! This beautiful set in the English King** pattern is hefty, polished and in excellent condition except as noted. Weights provided are for one utensil. The set includes (5) 6” butter knives (43.2 grams) (one blade is separated from the handle), (6) 10 1/4” dinner knives (77.6 grams), (5) 5 3/4” teaspoons (53.9 grams), (5) 7” soup spoons (85.2 grams), (5) 6 1/2” dessert forks (63.9 grams), (6) 7 3/8” dinner forks (80.8 grams), (1) 8 1/2” serving spoon (123.7 grams), (1) 6 7/8” cheese knife (54.8 grams). All pieces are marked “Tiffany & Co” and “Sterling”. The dinner forks are additionally marked “Pat 1885 M”. All pieces are presented in a dark wood case with a drawer and lined in brown “Hagerty Silversmiths Cloth”. The inside of the case provided is also marked “Reed and Barton, Tarnish Preventative” and also “Shreve, Crump & Low”. The case is in good condition with a few shallow dents and abrasions. This is likely the highest quality sterling flatware set we have ever offered.

**Patterns similar to Tiffany's English King were first used in France and England late in the eighteenth century and have remained among the most popular styles for flatware today in both Europe and America. Tiffany & Co first made its own version of English King in 1885. It harmonizes with any eighteenth century inspired style neo-Georgian, Colonial, Louis XVI, Sheraton, Chippendale, Adam or Hepplewhite. The rich, intricate decoration of Tiffany's English King pattern reflects the luxurious entertainments given during the latter part of the eighteenth century and will enhance and give a sense of occasion to present-day settings.

Designed by Charles Grosjean (1841-1888). Grosjean worked in his family's firm which produced high end silverware to prominent New York City retailers, including Tiffany. Upon his father's death, Grosjean left his family firm to become superintendent of Tiffany's silver factory in 1868. He had great background in silver and was an artist and was referred to as “one of the best living decorators of silver”.

Maximum Bidding

To save our bidders time, our system is desgined to accept "maximum bids."
A "maximum bid" is the highest bid you are willing to place on an item.
Our system will automatically bid for you, in the required increments, up to your "maximum bid."
The initial bid placed for you will be only as high as required to outbid any current bidders should your "maximum bid" be highest.
This means that you will always pay the minimum price required to "win" an item, and not necessarily your "maximum bid"

**NOTE: In the event that your maximum bid ties a previously left maximum bid, the previously left maximum bid will prevail.

**If you are the current High Bidder, entering another "Maximum Bid" will simply adjust your current "Maximum Bid" to the new amount providing it is higher than the "Current Bid". You are allowed to increase or decrease your "Maximum Bid"
