Customer Question

I have the Stag Horn set also as well as the carving set. I no longer have the box but am the original owner. Set has never been used. Husband was stationed in Germany in the early 60's. It is stamped with Solengren Germany. Each piece is carved with various animals, the knives have colored etched scenes. Does this have value?

Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,

My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.

The set definitely has value, even without the box and especially due to the fact that it is such pristine condition. These mid 20th century etched carving sets can bring anywhere from 80-125USD for the sharpener, fork and carving knife. Additional pieces can add between 5-10% onto the price(per additional item) of the Solingen carving set with no rust and no damage.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your vintage German carving set.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Frank
