Measuring 14" long by 10" wide by 7 1/2" high to the top of the handle, this is an intermediate sized meat dome. It would be large enough to cover a game bird, capon, or beef roast, but not a large turkey.

Unmarked except for the number "14" stamped on the underside of the detachable handle, it is likely English in origin and 19th century.

It has a 1 3/4" wide, ogee shaped, molded border around the lower rim...

Continental flatware tends to be larger scaled than American and that is the case with this 10 3/8" long dinner knife made by France's Cristofle. The comparable American piece would be identified as a banquet knife.

It is a 19th century item in an unknown pattern. There is a handsome, period "LKB" monogram.

The blunt end, carbon steel blade is original and marked "Christofle a Paris." The ferrule on the silverplate handle is stamped "Cristofle."

The condition is good...

Marked on the blade "1847 Rogers" (International) and with "Meriden Conn." in a circle, this master butter knife measures 7 1/2" long and has a blade twisted at a right angle to the handle. The pattern is "Arcadian," which is one of the few silver-plated designs that rival comparable sterling pieces. The pattern features classical figures offered much in the manner of Gorham's "Versailles" or Tiffany's "Olympian" and dates from the same 1880's period...
