Figural Serving Knife & Fork, 1870










Details

Oozing quality throughout, these are a sumptuous pair of servers and indicative of the very best silver emanating from the workshop of Francis Higgins.

 

Comprising a large knife and fork, these servers would be ideal for puddings, pies and cakes and in particular for celebratory cake cutting such as at a wedding. The figural handles are expertly modelled as maidens carrying bunches of grapes and are wonderfully defined and detailed. The fork tines are cleverly made from extended vine tendrils. There is a discreet engraved crest to the lower sections of both handles and the all over gilding adds to the feeling of the very highest quality.

 

The case has done a fantastic job of preserving these pieces as they remain in superb condition.
