This 5 1/2" long, .7 T. oz., knife is an early example of Kirk's signature "Repousse" design, dating 1846-61, as indicated by the "1015." silver standard mark (roughly equivalent to coin) accompanied by "S. Kirk & Son" stamped on the lower edge of the handle.

It has a flat, solid silver, handle with a square end, and a pointed and tapered blade, and may be a (butter or cheese) spreader or for fruit. Whatever its function, it is not a readily found piece.

Never monogrammed or inscribed, it is in choice estate condition. It shows no wear, has a clean blade, and an overall bright finish.
