This is a stunning set of 12 Antique 12 French Galalith/Resin and Brass Melon Knives. The handles are the most lovely coral colour. They date from around the end of the 19th century/start of the 20th century, so around 1900. These were common back in those times and these come in their original leather covered presentation box. The leather bound box is in remarkable condition, the closures still work. The knives are in good antique condition, the handles are all good. The brass knife blades have plenty of wear in places as I have shown in the photos. This is a remarkable set. Each knife measures 17cms (approx. 6.75") long. The presentation box measures 19cms (7.5") x 17cms (6.75") x 3cms (1.25") deep.
