A STUNNING PAIR OF VICTORIAN FISH SERVERS WITH CARVED HANDLES.

THE BLADES OF THE FISH SERVERS ARE BOTH FINELY HAND PIERCED AND HAND ENGRAVED BOTH BACK AND FRONT.

AS SOME FISH SERVERS OF THIS PERIOD WERE USED WITH A STERLING SILVER LARGE CUTLERY SERVICE, I HAVE FOUND THAT QUITE OFTEN THE FISH SERVERS THAT WENT WITH THE SERVICE WERE OF VERY GOOD QUALITY BUT WERE NOT MARKED WITH A SILVER-PLATE MARK. THIS WAS TO GIVE VISITORS THE APPEARANCE THAT THEY WERE STERLING SILVER, AS WERE THE REST OF THE KNIVES, FORKS AND SPOONS ON THE TABLE.

AS THESE FISH SERVERS WERE NOT FREQUENTLY USED, THEY REMAIN IN THE SAME PRISTINE CONDITION AS WHEN THEY WERE FIRST MADE IN THE 1870's.

UNLIKE SOME EBAYER's I AM NOT LEAVING IT TO YOU (THE BUYER) TO MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND WHETHER THEY ARE STERLING SILVER OR SILVER PLATE. THEY ARE DEFINITELY SILVER PLATE.

THE FISH KNIFE MEASURES 13 ¼" LONG AND THE FISH FORK IS 9 ½" LONG. THEY WEIGH 315 GRAMS TOGETHER.

THEY ARE A MOST BEAUTIFUL AND DECORATIVE PAIR OF FISH SERVERS WITH LOVELY HANDLES AND T ARE NO CRACKS IN THE HANDLES. THESE ARE ONE OF THE FINEST PAIR OF FISH SERVERS I HAVE HAD FOR MANY YEARS. A WELCOME ADDITION FOR A COLLECTOR.
