We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. Fantastic & RARE antique French hallmarked sterling silver 2pc Napoleon III era traveler's dining set for kit, a pliant or "pliante" folding fork & spoon with ornate handles, original sterling tines & bowl and all in wonderful condition! These would normally be found in a traveling compendium or etui, commonly with the other items a traveler or picnicker might need such as a tumbler, cork screw, etc. Rare to find though and especially in such wonderful condition, as you see here. All with the original folding implements, sterling silver hallmarked with the "Mercure" or Mercury hallmark, used on silver items meant for export from France.
The handles also hallmarked, only the inner mechanism are not sterling. The silversmith marks are visible, appear to be either "CZ" or "GZ" but I've not been able to find a definitive reference so far. A fabulous set, the Swiss Army style camping gear for those of us to camp with L.
Rare, don't miss them! Just as you see them.Recently professionally polished and ready for your adventure! They are a bit loose at the hinged area and don't currently'lock' into position solidly. I'm sure there's some way to stiffen that mechanism up a bit and I'll look at them in the coming days. See pictures for all weights and measurements. We're easy to deal with.
