Description


This exceptional 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 an incurved shaped form.


The anterior surface of the knife is embellished with a bright cut engraved scene depicting a fish and eel displayed on a riverbank.


The posterior surface of the knife's blade is ornamented with a fine bright cut engraved interlaced scrolling leaf decorated border to the incurved edge.


The anterior and posterior surface of the fork drop is ornamented with bright cut engraved interlaced angular scrolling leaf decoration, reflecting the design to the knife blade.


The Victorian fish servers in sterling silver are fitted with fine and impressive shaped carved rounded ivory handles encircled with stylised leaf decoration and a subtle ribbed border encircling the lower portion.


Both servers retain the original sterling silver ferrules ornamented with embossed gadroon decoration.


These fish servers are fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with satin and velvet lined interior, bearing the retailer's mark 'Ollivant & Botsford, Goldsmiths, St Ann Street, Manchester'.


The box secures with a push fit catch.
