With G&S Co Ltd trefoil mark and Birmingham 1952 stamps.Come with 2 spoons, for salt and mustard, marked with G&S Co Ltd trefoil mark and Birmingham 1952 stamps. This set shows no signs of ever having to be used. The large pieces and backs of spoons have a couple of small tarnish spots from storage (which would easily clean off) but apart from fingermarks, all pieces are bright and shiny as they left the factory.
As the finish is so beautiful, it would repay a professional mirror polish. Approx silver weight is 110 gms. Comes in the fully fitted original case, the lid silk lined with The Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company Ltd, 112 Regent St, W1 and By Appointment to HM The King; has slight age staining but NOT unsightly. Base is plush blue with silk beneath. The blue leatherette case has twin catches and good hinges unfortunately it has some damp damage to the top and on the base.
Possibly some judicious cleaning / colouring could make this less obvious, but it is the only flaw to the lovely old set. Perfect to use on your table, or would make a welcome gift.
