Hi Jim..I have a set of Durgin sterling flatware, pattern is Dubarry. There are 55 pieces..6 dinner knives, 6 luncheon knives,6 butter spreaders, 6 dinner forks, 6 luncheon forks, 6 gold-washed salad forks, 6 teaspoons, 4 soup spoons, 4 servings spoons-8 1/2", 2 large, beautiful gold-washed fork & spoon, both are 9 1/2" x 3", 1 very large serving spoon 12" x 2/1/2", 1 knife - 8", 1 small gold washed spoon.  I have 2 offers & am wondering if you would be interested in purchasing this exquisite set?  The banks are engraved with BB&B or written out.  This was my grandmothers and along with me, they are not young..Thanks, Sue

Answer
Hi, Sue.

I'd be happy to make an offer but I do this type of thing only via email. If you will send an email to GeorgiaSilver@bellsouth.net, I'll reply with an offer. In your email, just refer to the DuBarry offer request. There is no need to list all the items again. One question I do have - do any pieces have custom engraving such as monograms? The "BB&B" is OK.

Thanks.

Best wishes,

Jim
