Francis 1st Sterling Silver Reed & Barton Flatware Service 52 Piece Set

$3,950per set

About

Classic set of Francis I was made by the prestigious firm of Reed and Barton silver company, Taunton, Mass. The sterling silver pattern was introduced in 1907, (I have also seen idates of 1906 and 1908,) after the design work by Ernest Meyer. His goal was to emulate the design work of a chief court artist and sculptor for King Francis I of France, Benvenuto Cellini. The pattern is in the Renaissance-Baroque styling, displaying 15 fruit and flower designs, paying tribute to Francis 1st throne entrance in the year 1515. The old maker’s mark of Reed & Barton signified with an Eagle, a Lion and the letter “R” accompanied by the word sterling. The old mark was made prior to the 1950’s, after which the maker’s mark changed to “Reed & Barton” accompanied by the word sterling." Some have an additional H along with Sterling- Reed and Barton. Place setting pieces were produced in regular weight and heavy weight. The heavy weight pieces were marked with an ‘H’. Three of the teasppons have the H. Four of the oyster forks, three tespoons, five salad forks, the pointed spoon and seven dinner forks have the old markings. The 52 piece set includes: Eight knives, eight dinner forks, eight salad forks, eight oyster forks, 16 teaspoons, one salt spoon, one large meat carving knife and fork and, one pointed serving spoon.
