Antique Edwardian Carved Wooden Stainless Steel Bread Knife

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

A lovely antique Edwardian English carved stainless steel wooden bread knife, dating from the early 20th Century.

A nice example of an English carved wooden bread knife, with a clean stainless steel blade making it perfect for ongoing day to day use in the modern kitchen.

The carved treen handle has been engraved “BREAD”. At the time of production this would have been quite deep but it is now well worn from use. The “B” is especially worn. Nonetheless, the lettering can clearly be read and it still makes such an interesting carved kitchen utensil to have on display. The handle also has a lovely smooth worn patina to it, making it very easy to use. Overall, the wood is in good condition with only some odd patches of discoloration from age and use.

The stainless steel blade is very clean, with just a small patch of corrosion at the tip and around the collar, and has a sharp serated blade. It is engraved with stylised script writing ‘Bread Knife’ with the place of manufacture (Sheffield, England) also engraved.
