Dominick & Haff "Trianon Pierced" Vermeil Jelly Knife with Enamel
click for more pictures for item 3256f

A late 19th century rococo pattern produced by Dominick & Haff, "Trianon" is as fully French in style as its name implies.

Made in two versions, solid background and pierced, it is replete with scrolls, acanthus leaves, and delicate leaves with flowers, all set in moderately high relief.

Elegant without any embellishment, this pierced, 8 1/8" long, 1.4 T. oz., jelly knife is made all the more so by the addition of an overall vermeil, i.e. gold gilt, surface, and rich, multi-colored enamel work applied on the front of the handle. This latter feature includes multiple hues of blues and greens, with white and red accents.

The blade is relatively narrow, with a gently curved lower edge, and a raised upper side with embossed scrolls.

Never monogrammed, this piece is in immaculate condition, showing no evident wear. Enamel on silver is quite subject to chipping or flaking and there appears to be none of that on this. The blade is free of bends or dents, and the gold finish is completely intact.

Marks are the three part Dominick & Haff emblem and the word "Sterling."
