A set of Silver Plated Fish Cutlery by Elkington

This truly outstanding set of fish knives and forks are by Elkington, and dated 1856. They are silver plated, and of magnificent quality. I can easily say that this is the finest set of fish knives and forks I have ever had, either in silver or in silver plate.

Each handle is decorated with an image of Poseidon holding a trident, in excellent high relief. They are extremely well made, heavy and substantial, and marked on the reverse.
