Each piece has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.

There is some subtle wear to the high points of a few knife terminals, in keeping with age; this does not affect their integrity.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse surface of each handle are all very clear; the hallmarks to the knife handles have wear in keeping with age but remain legible.
