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...
