The anterior face of the concave curved blade is ornamented with a segmented panel of impressive bright cut engraved foliate ornamentation, all on a matte background.


The reverse surface of the blade is plain, apart from the feature hallmarks.


This antique knife retains the original, fine and impressive carved mother of pearl handle embellished with fluted ornamentation in a swirl design to the handpiece, in addition to bead designs above a circular tiered terminal.


The hallmarked stem and ferrule of this exceptional knife is embellished with embossed foliate designs accented with circular knops.


This impressive antique gold butter knife is fitted to the original hinged leatherette presentation box with satin and velvet lined interior, secured with a push fit catch.


The interior of the box cover bears the retailer's mark 'The Association of Diamond Merchants, Jewellers & Silversmiths, 6, Grand Hotel Buildings, Trafalgar Square, London'.
