A superb set of all Sterling Silver (hard-soldered) dozen pairs of Fish Knives and forks in the rare Venetian pattern by Richard Martin & Ebenezer Hall  (Martin Hall & Co) 1869

Condition report

The condition of these pieces is excellent. They are made as one piece (known in the trade as hard-soldered) and are therefore all Sterling silver. The handles are not loaded with any foreign material. This type of construction, which requires a lot more Sterling silver, had only been in existence a few years when these were made and only the very finest would have been made using this process.
