length 6 1/8 inches, total Troy weight 17.85 Troy ounces, fine condition, monogrammed "m". These are delightfully heavy in the hand, and so thick that they're marked on the side (see fifth enlargement).

What could you do with them? Well, I for one would be ecstatic if served an appetizer of duck liver paté in a little ramekin with a very elegant silver knife. But then again, I'd probably also be pretty happy to see this even without one. For our purposes here, however, please choose... Click for details

The front of the handle reads "Sarah Aurora Dauchy" while the reverse is inscribed in similar script, "From her grandmother A. Mead."

Probing for the specifics about the lives of these persons is aided by the fact that both the retailer and manufacturer are located in New York's Hudson River... Click for details

Large at 7 7/8" long and weighty at 1.4 T. oz., this master butter knife is solid sterling silver.
