I was hoping you could tell me about about this ball and claw set.  It appears the handle is 800 sterling, but I am not sure the make up of the spreader and knife set.  It appears to have a small crown mark, 800 then 2 crossed axes but it is so small I could be mistaken.  I was wondering what kind of set it is, for example a cheese set?  Also, anything else like does it have value or is it collectable. Any info is appreciated. Thank you!

Answer
Hello.

I'm not going to be much help here. I recommend looking at the German marks found on this page: http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks.html . The "800" and crown are found in many marks there.

It does look like a cheese set but I'm just guessing. You might post your question and picture on the forum at: http://www.925-1000.com/forum/index.php . A number of experts participate and maybe one can answer your question.

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,

Jim
