Description


These magnificent antique George IV English sterling silver meat skewers/letter openers* has a plain tapered form.


This exceptional set is comprised of three pairs of meat skewers, each pair graduating in size.


Each skewer is ornamented with the contemporary bright cut engraved crest below a baron's coronet.


The terminal of each skewer is embellished with a chased decorated shell design below a reed decorated circular ring loop fingerpiece.


Sets of six graduated antique silver skewers are difficult to locate, especially those by the renowned and important London silversmith Paul Storr.


* The original use of each piece was purely as a game/meat skewer. Due to their form, they may certainly be used as effective letter openers.
