This is a magnificent coin silver fish serving set, ca. 1865, unmarked, in the Aesthestic taste with boldly cast and applied medallions and highly decorative bright-cut engraving. While unmarked, this set bears a striking resemblance to a medallion pattern made by John Polhamus and retailed by Tiffany during the same period. The knife blade features a charming engraved koi fish surrounded by sea flora and waves. Monogrammed on the reverse "F L D O’M". Condition: excellent. Measurement: knife, 11"; fork, 9".
