Complete Silver Set in Wooden Chest by Calderoni Fratelli
A complete twelve-piece silver service for twelve in beautiful condition from Calderoni Fratelli of Milan Italy. The set contains a total of 153 pieces and all of it housed in a custom wooden chest with felt-covered fittings to hold each piece in place.
Calderoni Fratelli (Calderoni Brothers) metal works were formed in 1851 and is perhaps most famous for their later work of designer Gio Ponti in the 1940s-1960s. This set dates from the 1930s and shares the stylistic point of view of French designers Ravinet d’Enfert. Sleek, streamlined with just simple and elegant detailing this is a set to use as well as treasure.
Each place setting contains dinner knives and forks, luncheon knives and forks and dessert knives and forks as well as tea, soup and service spoons and nine beautiful serving pieces.
