The cutlery parts are still in good condition for their age. They show scratches due to use, but no damage.
All parts are marked [ALFENIDE][Goat's head in combination with 84][HALPHEN]
The teaspoons are marked [ALFENIDE][Goat's head in combination with C-H][HALPHEN]
* The serving spoon was made by WMF. This features the WMF maker's mark from before the 20th century. Because I believe that this was added in that period as well, I have decided to leave this in with the set.
