All pieces bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means they're in. 950 silver under the gold plating 95% pure so higher than the.925 standard for "sterling" silver. There are silversmith marks but they're slightly obscured by the curvature of the fittings and only partially legible.
There are markings on the glass base of the larger master salt or condiment bowl that appear to read P. D'Avesn, Made in France.A gorgeous set, don't miss them! Very good to excellent condition. I see no chips, there are no cracks or other notable damage. Some slight age tarnish to the vermeil and most visible on the insides of the spoon bowls.
