$120.00

Small, or even diminutive, for a cake saw, and charmingly so, this piece measures 8 11/16" long and weighs 1.3 T. oz.

It has a long, relatively narrow, blade, with a sawtooth upper edge, which is the requisite component for the form.

The pattern is Wood & Hughes' 1870s "Zephyr," which is a Renaissance Revival or Moorish inspired design. Indeed, the blade front on this is engraved in an arabesque pattern, which has Islamic style origins.

There is a fancy Old English "J" monogram inscribed on the handle obverse.

In flawless estate condition, this shows no wear, retaining clear pattern detail, and has a fine finish. The blade is without bends, nicks, or burrs.

Marks are "WwH," "Sterling," and the number "13."
