The anterior and posterior surface of the knife is embellished with pierced and bright cut engraved scrolling leaf ornamentation paralleling the shape of the blade, accented with a segmented palmette design to the lower portion.


The drop of the fork is ornamented with further pierced and bright cut engraved scrolling leaf designs, reflecting the same design as the knife blade.

These antique boxed sterling silver fish servers are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The embossed ornamentation is very sharp and the bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

The exterior of the box is in presentation condition and the interior has wear in keeping with age; the push fit catch is deficient.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse of each blade and handle 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 these pieces of Victorian silverware.
