Antique Moselle Grape Silverware
This Vintage pattern of Antique Moselle Grape silver-plated flatware was introduced by International Silver Co. in 1904 and continuously produced until about 1918, with new pieces being added to the line from time to time. This pattern has remained very popular with collectors in the years since then.
