SOLD - Electroplated Silver Lobster Set - Boxed - Antique Victorian


This fine antique Victorian electroplated lobster set consists of a claw cracker and lobster pick.

The large and impressive cracker handles have a shaped, compressed circular bead form.

The tapering serrated (functional) portion of the handles is embellished with a bright cut engraved stylised leaf motif decoration to the sides and thumbpieces.

The hinge is further ornamented with bright cut engraved flower motifs.

The anterior surface of the large lobster pick is embellished with bright cut engraved decoration depicting a ship on water to the shaped central portion and a fish entwined around a trident to the scoop.

The reverse surface of the pick is plain and unembellished, apart from the electroplater’s mark.

This lobster set is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with satin and velvet lined interior and secures with a push fit catch.


The pieces of this antique lobster set are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The box is in excellent presentation condition with slight signs of wear to the interior in keeping with age.

The bright cut engraved decoration to the silverware is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse of the lobster pick are very clear.

Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these pieces of Victorian silverware.
