|Appraiser Comments:||This is a fish set, it may have bene produced in Bavaria or Limioges. Fish sets like this were popular during the Victorian era, a time when there was a serving pice for every psosible situation, part of the ostentation of the time.
These are very beautiful and desirable. Three is not enough information on the back to identify the maker, but they are desirable all the same.
The chips would be easy restorations, costing 30-100.
