The reverse surface is embellished with a subtle bright cut engraved single line border.


Each piece of this service is fitted with a large and impressive carved ivory handle realistically modelled in the form of a sheaf encircled with a belt strap.


The pieces of this set have impressive embossed basket weave decorated ferrules.


This fine fish service is fitted to the original hinged mahogany box with a lift up lid and two velvet lined lift out trays.


The box is ornamented with brass fittings, including a vacant shield shaped cartouche.


The interior of the box features the retailers mark ‘W & M. Dodge, Watch Makers & Goldsmiths, Manchester'.
