Purchase this great set of flatware and serving pieces now in time for your family and friends Thanksgiving and holiday dinners!
This is a vintage set of solid bronze & nickel flatware from Thailand. The set includes service for 12 plus serving pieces, and all have a lifetime warranty. The set is housed in a teak box with a bronze handle. The teak is from the Thai forest and is kiln-dried, so it will never rot. The story of the manufacture of the teak box, as well as the designation that this manufacturer has received the highest quality of excellence on their bronze flatware is included in the bottom layer of the box.
There is an 8-1\/2 x 11 sheet of authenticity, as well as two other documents on the quality and arrangement of the pieces, and the VU - Lifetime Warranty coverpiece on the lid. All the set has the "VU" designation of excellence.
The pattern is called "Swan Design" and is quite simply elegant. The serving spoons have a graceful placement of curves in the spoon bowls. All the pieces have a very nice heft to them, much like one finds in better restaurants throughout the world.
The set consists of the following pieces:
12 - Ice Tea Spoons
11 - Soup Spoons
12 - Salad Forks
12 - Dinner Forks
12 - Dessert Forks
12 - Dinner Knives
12 - Steak Knives
12 - Butter Knives
12 - Coffee Spoons
12 - Tea Forks (for hors d'oeuvres?)
12 - Tea Spoons (for hors d'oeuvres?)

1 - Serving Fork - Small
1 - Serving Spoon - Small
1 - Serving Fork - Big
1 - Serving Spoon - Big
1 - Carving Fork - Big
1 - Carving Knife - Big
1 - Pickle Fork
NOTE: The set is missing three of the 144 pieces, and the outside back of the box has a small surface piece missing, so the original price listed for this set ($430) reflects that. The three pieces that are missing are one of the soup spoons, a sugar spoon and a cheese knife. The small piece missing from the box is only on an outer edge, and the teak is still solid all the way through the box. I have seen two similar sets offered with prices over $500 - even though those two sets both had missing pieces.
NOTE: Since this solid teak and bronze box and its contents weighs alot, shipping will be via USPS Parcel Post. I will pay for all shipping charges to anywhere in the United States.
This set has been stored in a pet and smoke-free home, and I have not used any of the pieces in the set since I received them as compensation from an elderly couple in exchange for assisting them with inventory and packing their life's belongings due to the husband's need to go into a nursing home. I received the set with the three pieces missing and the small chip in the outer back of the solid teak case the set is kept in.
THANK YOU FOR LOOKING!
