Puiforcat Normandie Silverplate Flatware
Voyagers on the lavish French ocean liner SS Normandie dined at tables set with this flatware, commissioned from Jean Puiforcat in 1934. Re-created in the firm’s exceptionally handcrafted silver-plate, Normandie’s streamlined simplicity is just as stunning today. Louis-Victor Puiforcat based his first designs on 18th-century masterpieces of silver. Two hundred years later, the heirs to his Parisian design house create modern wares with the same exquisite quality. Dinner fork: 8"L; dinner knife: 9 1/4"L; salad fork: 6 3/4"L; dessert/soup spoon: 7"L; teaspoon: 5 1/2"L. Made in France.
