Description


This is an exceptional pair of large antique Victorian sterling silver fish servers.


The blade of the knife and the drop of the fork are embellished with pierced and bright cut engraved interlacing scrolling leaf decoration accented with stylised leaf motifs.


The decoration to the knife blade incorporates a stylised shell to the centre of the design below a shaped oval cartouche to each side.


The cartouche to the anterior surface depicts a man carrying hooked fish and fishing equipment in the foreground with a seascape incorporating two ships to the background.


The cartouche to the reverse surface of the blade remains vacant.


The servers are fitted with fine and impressive sterling silver handles embellished with embossed and chased scrolling decoration accented with volute scrolls and bearded mask ornamentation to each.


The decoration to each handle incorporates an oval vacant cartouche.


The handles to each server are filled, as to be expected.


Both servers have plain fully hallmarked ferrules.


These fish servers are fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with satin and velvet lined interior, which secures with a push fit catch.


Date: 1857

Condition


These antique fish servers are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The box is in excellent presentation condition in keeping with age.

There are some minor blemishes to the cartouches on the handles; these servers are as good a pair you could hope to find.

The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp, the embossed and chased decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the blade and handle of each server are very clear.


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