Not estate fresh, I bought this set 15 years ago at an estate sale and just recently found it when cleaning up. This set came with a business sized card with a printed name of Miss E B Richter.No monogram and I feel that this was a wedding gift and the card was used to ID giver so they could send thank you card. This set was tarnished as it hasnt been used in quite a while. I did remove top tarnish with baking soda, salt, vinegar solution with good results. The sheen on the inside of teaspoons was hard to capture in photos. This set was probably only used a few times and stored in box for years. The spoons are 5 7/8 inch and there are six of them. The sugar shell spoon 5 7/8 inches and the cream ladle measures 6 1/8 inch.
There appears to still be a slight gold wash on both the ladle and sugar spoon bowls. The box has a slight mark on top inside with two initials and the name MITCHELL, but you have to hold the box at an angle into a light to see it. The box is complete with the most wear to the front left corner as shown. No other tears or missing material. The box has a clasp but Ive been unable to lock it and have not looked into this further.
The wood support for the sugar shell is broke in half, but is in place and holds piece without trouble.
