    Condition Report*: The flatware service is in very good condition overall.  Several teaspoons are slightly out of round and there is evidence of loss to formerly silver gilt bowls in the ice cream spoons.  On the dinner knives some silverplated blades have minor loss to plating. The solid handled knives are monogrammed "H" to the reverse.
