This is a set of 6 vintage slipper shaped cutlery rests made by Pioneer. These are marked on the base as EPNS which is Electroplated nickel silver. This is an alloy of nickel, copper, and zinc that's covered with a layer of pure silver in an electrochemical process. Over time and polishing the silver coating has come off these charming little pieces and they are now a light brass colour. These are in a good used condition and were bought at a traditional French brocante market, although manufactured by Pioneer which is a British company. These type of cutlery rests are often found in France where the same cutlery is used for various courses in a meal. The cutlery end which has been used rests on the little indent of the slipper keeping any food or marks off the tablecloth. These have been lightly polished and would make a lovely addition to any dinner party. As all the items we sell are bought from French brocante fairs, they are used or vintage and will often show minor signs of their previous life in a French home. This is part of their unique French shabby chic appeal and any significant flaws are always clearly highlighted in the photos and descriptions.
