This is a complete set (82 pieces) of International Courtship sterling silver flatware in excellent to very good condition plus included is a Naken Tarnish Proof display/storage chest which is in good condition inside but only fair condition (see pic). All pieces are sterling silver unless otherwise noted.
Not all items have been polished and some have limited tarnish, but all are in excellent to very good condition without dents and only minor scratches, if any. Please note that there are 3 versions of the Courtship pattern. The full sterling set (handles and blades are sterling); a Stainless set which has a handle of sterling with a blade of stainless steel on specific cutting pieces (all the other pieces are full sterling); and a Plated set which has a handle of sterling with a blade of plated steel limited to specific cutting pieces (all the other pieces are full sterling).
This pattern is the Stainless set which has stainless steel where noted below. Stainless was typically used because it is less prone to bending/scratches when cutting than sterling silver which is a softer metal.
