Description: A boxed set of pure silver (990 grade) Korean silver rice spoons and forks, 6 of each, with enamel mandarin duck pairs on the handle. The spoons and forks are the traditional shape, the forks have 3 tines, the colour is a very bright white, given the very high grade (99% pure vs sterling which is 92.5 % pure, hence 925 grade). The six rice spoons have red enamel mandarin ducks, the forks have blue enamel mandarin ducks. All 12 are clearly hallmarked "AG990". The Mandarin duck, also called "Wedding Ducks" in South Korea, represent fidelity as they mate for life, and are traditionally given as wedding gifts, red for female and blue for male, hence the enamel colours. The red velvet box has a geometric design and Hangul (Korean writing) figures, the interior lid is embossed "Prime Minister Republic of Korea, under Prime Minister's emblem", so we assume this was a wedding gift from the Prime Minister. This set is accompanied by its original quality guanantee certificate, issued by a member of the Korea Jeweller's Association, certifying weight of 225 grammes and grade of 990 pure silver.
