Absolutely superb Victorian sterling silver knife and fork with heavy mother-of-pearl handles. The blade and fork are trimmed with bright-cut feathered borders and both pieces are engraved with an anchor at sea. The handles are decorated with a similar feathered design.Originally intended as fruit cutlery, this pair is large enough to be used as cake servers; the knife is also very well suited as a paper knife. The handles are simply marvellous - deep, opalescent lustre and very solid design with 1.5 cm depth, which is very unusual for mother-of-pearl handles. Made by Martin, Hall & Co (Richard Martin & Ebenezer Hall) and fully hallmarked for Sheffield, 1894.
