Description


This is a fine and impressive pair of antique Victorian sterling silver and ivory handled fish servers consists of a serving knife and fork..


The blade of the knife and the drop of the fork have a shaped form and are embellished with pierced undulating line decoration, graduating in size.

The anterior surface of the knife is ornamented with a bright cut engraved undulating line decorated background accented with a subtle foliate motif in addition to a scallop shaped border.
