The flatware is marked "A&D" for Allen & Darwin, Sheffield Silver ca 1890. With true mother of Pearl handles and beautiful engraving throughout. Rich wood lockbox in fine condition with velvet lining. The box is marked Graham & Morton, Stirling, which was a "maker of high class and artistic goods" in Stirling, Scotland and was in business between 1897 and 1906. I have been told that articles of "epns" are made with plated metal consisting of a base layer of copper and fused layer of silver on both sides, not dipped, which makes it more durable.
The set appears to be in very good condition and rarely used. There is some provenance of which I have no proof... The set belonged to someone of Royal blood who immigrated to the United States in the late 1890s.Feel free to ask any questions!
