Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3401f   $46.00


click for details
While "Olive" was perhaps the most popular pattern produced during the mid 19th century, and made by numerous manufacturers, with many examples consequently yet extant, this particular item is unusual.

It is a 7 1/8" long, 1.0 T. oz., flat, solid silver, knife.

About the size of a master butter, it has a long, slender blade that comes to a point and is likely an early for its form, individual fish knife, and thus a scarce find for the period.

The pattern is double die struck, meaning... Click for details
