3 x Late Victorian Mother of Pearl Pocket/Pen Knives

3 x Late Victorian Mother of Pearl Pocket/Pen Knives

SKU: RJ00434
£60.00Price

During the 18th and 19th century most adults would have a small pocket knife. This would be used for anything from aiding needlework to peeling a piece of fruit.

 

The fashion in the 19th century was for mother of pearl, this was used to decorate anything from a small sewing tool to an elaborate piece of furniture. These three pocket knives would probably been part of a sewing set for the lady of the house, with tiny retractable blades they could be used for all manner of small tasks. They would have been the property of a reasonably well off lady.

 

The mother of pearl is in very good condition with no cracks or breaks and steel blades all retract well.

 

Average dimensions: 6cm - 6.5cm long
