There is no loss of the plating nor any pitting or corrosion to any of the silver plate. Only the knife blades have some small pin prick spots of corrosion mainly at the base of the blades, one knife only has two small spots to the flat of the blade as shown. This is beautiful setting in well cared for condition and ready for many more years of use. For Imperial measurement users a handy guide is 25mm or 2.5cm is a little less than 1 inch, so 100mm or 10cm is just less than 4 inches.
