Coin Silver dessert knives, A Coles for Jaccard, St Lou
$260.00 set of 4
These 7 1/2" tea knives are in fair condition. The silver blades are excellent and there are no repairs or cracks. The handles have many small dents. The reason for this is that the interior of the handle is a resin which shrinks over 150 years leaving a space between the silver & the resin. Each time they are dropped in a drawer, they dent. However, these are so hard to find we overlook some flaws. These were made by Albert Coles and retailed by E. Jaccard of St. Louis. Ca 1855.
