Description

History of this flatware set:

This vintage, circa 1960s/1970s, 800 silver flatware set in the Savoy pattern was made for Buccellati by Fabbrica Argenteria Clementi dì Giovanni Mantel. The silverware hallmark shows the silver maker was originally a subsidiary of a German company called Wilkens. The company passed on to Michelangelo Clementi, and then Giovanni Mantel who resurrected the company after World War II. The mark on this flatware was registered in 1968 (see photo of hallmark). The silverworks company did work for Buccellati, eventually being acquired by Buccellati in the 1980s. (After the company was acquired by Buccellati, the hallmark changed to include the name Buccellati in the hallmark.)
