A Chinese Silver and Wood‘Tousse’ (eating set), comprising a knife and chopsticks. This type of sets was very common in china and in all the countries under the Chinese influence from Tibet to Mongolia. It was part of a man's formal dress up to the turn of the 20th century. Trousse is a French word, encompassing such items as "case" and "tool kit." In cutlery it was first applied to Medieval and Renaissance hunting sets, with a large knife for killing animals, sheathed along with small tools for 'dismantling' them. By extension Trousse has been applied to other cutlery kits, such as Asian eating sets like this one. A wonderful collectors piece to adorn your home or collection.
