Victorian Cased Silver Plated Fish Servers

Victorian Cased Silver Plated Fish Servers

SKU: RJ00875
£55.00Price

The earliest known examples of fish servers date from the 1740s, and these were single servers. A hundred years later, fish serving forks were added to form a fish serving set. The very early single bladed fish servers were often symmetrical, pierced, and resembled trowels. Later examples from the 19th century were assymetrical with curved blades. Later Victorian versions often had matching serving forks. Early servers had contiguous silver handles, and later versions were made with a composite of silver blade and tines, with either ivory, mother-of-pearl, bone or composite handles. 

 

This is a very fine pair of silver plated fish servers in there original leather covered box, the blades have a pierced decoration and fine engraving, the handles are made from polished mother of pearl.

 

These would have been used in a wealthy household.

 

Condition is very good with no wear to the silver plate or damage to the mother of pearl.

 

Dimensions: 39cm x 13cm
