Nice find...I've bought several lovely serving spoons and salad sets from car boots here in Germany...absolute bargains and so much prettier than the plastic stuff I could have bought for the same price from Ikeathumbsup

Most of my cutlery has been handed down & looks very similar to this motley collection.............somehow more charming than an expensive & pristine matching set.
Some of mine is silver, & much of it from the 1800's (a fair bit of it looking a touch worn around the edges too!). I wouldn't swap it for an Ikea set for all the world! smile

I also have some similar looking cutlery buy we don't use it much as we ( sorry Minnie) have stainless steel cutlery  that we use  daily some from Ikea but its functional and goes in thr dishwasher.
I had to stop using the bone handles knives and forks as my darling kept putting them dish-washer them and it does get them wrecked fairly fast !

They are silver and i have discouvered that they date from the 1800's too. Posted a few comments on FB as i am learning about their past with the help of their markings. Maree gave me a few tips.

I am proud to now own them.
