A perfect dinner is not just about good food and good company, it's also about the ambiance and the layout, and what better way to create an elegant setting than to set a pretty table with silver cutlery?
This beautiful silver-plated cutlery set from the 60s is sure to create the right atmosphere. It consists of 12 forks, 12 tablespoons and 12 dessert spoons, but lacks the ladle that traditionally completes French cutlery sets.
The First French Empire is a period marked by the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte from 1804 to 1815.
The craftsmen were invited to create majestic works to symbolise imperial power. For this purpose, they took up Egyptian or Greco-Roman motifs and adapted them to furniture.
To these are added imperial and warlike motifs. These include the crown, the imperial eagle, the bee, the star, the spear...
Mahogany, walnut, maple, elm and ash are representative woods of this style.
