Description


These fine antique George IV English sterling silver game skewers/letter opener* has a plain tapered form.


The anterior and posterior surfaces of the skewer are embellished with chased decorated shell designs below the plain circular ring loop fingerpiece.


* The original use of this item was purely as a game/meat skewer. Due to its form, this piece may certainly be used as an effective letter opener.


Maker: Unknown
Date: 1820

Condition


These antique letter openers are a very good gauge of silver, very good quality and in excellent condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each skewer show wear in keeping with the age; all the hallmarks are clear apart from the maker’s marks which are rubbed and illegible.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of antique flatware.
