Item Details
Description
96 Pc. Reed & Barton (Reed and Barton) "Francis I" (Francis 1st) Sterling Silver Dinner Size Flatware Set. Service for 12, this set contains 12 dinner forks - 7 7/8", 12 salad forks, 12 cream soup spoons, 24 tea spoons, 12 dinner knives - 9 3/8”, 12 butter spreaders, 8 solid butter spreaders, 2 large serving spoons, 1 shell motif sugar spoon and 1 ladle. Total approx. weight - 114.18 troy oz. Francis 1st is an American sterling silver tableware pattern, introduced in 1906, named after King Francis I of France. It was designed by Ernest Meyer, a French silversmith. His goal was to create a pattern that eclipsed the splendid Renaissance-Baroque metalwork of Benvenuto Cellini, court artist and sculptor in the court of King Francis I who ascended the French throne in 1515. It took him three years to design. The pattern is unique, given that - unlike other flatware patterns - it has fifteen different fruit-and-flower clusters. Each handle bears one of these detailed designs. It has been claimed that the design idea came from one of the many tableware patterns of the Italian silver manufacturer Cesa 1882. Francis 1st flatware is produced by Reed & Barton Silversmiths. The original back stamp featured a lion, an eagle, and the letter “R”; in about 1950 a new back stamp came into use which reads “Reed and Barton". This flatware is made in the U.S.A. and is warranted by its production company for 100 years. Three American Presidents (Wilson, Truman, and Eisenhower) have owned the Francis 1st tableware pattern.
