These four, matched, silver candlesticks are estate items with a continuous history in one family that traces to the 19th century. The particulars of the origin of these, however, are lost to memory, which leaves full identification inferential.

They are probably silverplate and probably English. Each piece has three symbol touch marks on the lower edge, but these are heavily rubbed. While perhaps recognizable to a knowing eye, not so for this listing...

Probably a standard indicator for silverplate, and probably European in origin, this piece is marked "80T."

It is a charming combination baby's rattle with a whistle end. The actual rattle is three conjoined bells that jingle like sleigh bells. These have a wire frame that leads to a twist stem which is attached to the whistle which also functions as the actual handle.

It is an estate item always resident within one family, and has likely late Victorian or early 20th century date...

Continental flatware tends to be larger scaled than American and that is the case with this 10 3/8" long dinner knife made by France's Cristofle. The comparable American piece would be identified as a banquet knife.

It is a 19th century item in an unknown pattern. There is a handsome, period "LKB" monogram.

The blunt end, carbon steel blade is original and marked "Christofle a Paris." The ferrule on the silverplate handle is stamped "Cristofle."

The condition is good...
