Antique Deeply Carved EPNS Butter Knife with Flower Decoration
A wonderful example of a deeply carved treen handled EPNS butter knife, dating from the early twentieth Century.
The dark hardwood handle features a fabulous deeply carved flower in its centre, with overlapping leaves either side of it. The carving has hardly worn, meaning the detail is still very clear, which is quite rare for a smaller wooden handled utensil. The EPNS blade also has engraved floral detail.
The butter knife is in overall good condition. The wooden handle is still in great condition. The EPNS blade has yellowed in places with age and also has a tarnished patch on the back.
Length, 18.5cm; Handle Width, 2.5cm; Blade Width, 2cm.
