Description


This large antique Victorian sterling silver meat skewer/letter opener* has a tapered form.


The surface of this skewer is embellished with a contemporary engraved initial ‘R’ below the plain circular ring loop finger piece.


The reverse surface is plain and unembellished apart from the featured hallmarks.


This fine example of antique silversmith was crafted by the renowned London female silversmith Mary Chawner.


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


Date: 1838

Condition


This antique skewer is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse surface are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Mary Chawner silver.
