This set of silverware/flatware is a great, high quality, service for 4 by #AUten . You get 6 pieces per serving: A butter knife, a steak knife, a soup spoon, a tea spoon, a dinner fork and a salad fork. You get 4 of each and it's very well balanced made of stainless steel. I washed this set before putting it away in my dishwasher. It came out terriifc w/out any spots. I love the shell design at the bottom and it is so classic yet modern that it can go with any decor. I will be buying 2 more sets so that I can have enough for service for 12. at $21.89 per set it's a great price for a nice . well balanced high quality set.
