Up for sale is an antique R. Hostombe & Son Sheffield England 3 piece quadruple plate serving carving set. They were most likely produced around the turn of the century. All three handles have the same design on each side which is a very lovely Art Nouveau pattern with flowing flowers, leaves and vines. The 3 handles are all marked Quadruple Plate. The knife blade is marked R. Hostombe & Son, Sheffield, England. The sharpening steel is marked Sheffield, England and there are no extra marks on the serving fork.
The plating is in very good condition but could use a cleaning or polishing due to tarnishing.
The knife measures 14 1/4" long, the sharpening rod is 12 1/4" long, and the fork is 10 1/4" long.
The knife blade looks to have it's original shape and has not been overly sharpened in the past.
