Mid-Century Modern Dining Service Utensils with Case
Retro Modern Hong Kong export dining service utensils in brass and a hard dark red wood, perhaps cherry-wood or redwood. Circa 1950’s.
Found in the original faux snake skin box with ‘Made in Hong Kong’ sticker on the side (image 5). The exterior of the box is a bit beat-up, but the red felt interior is like new.
The dining service utensils include a wonderfully stylized fork and spoon that are 10 3/4″ long. They weigh about 1/2 lb. each. Very sturdy, well-made. Beautiful soft golden even patina on the solid brass.
In great condition with very light scratching on the brass surfaces.
