This is a wonderful tactile example of a Victorian carved wooden English bread knife.

Dating from the mid to late 1800s, this bread knife has nicely carved detail. Featuring two layered rosettes and leaf detail on the handle, it is a very pretty carving. The handle also has a wonderful rich colour and patination. Although a little worn in places, the carving is recognisable and it has a very tactile feel to it.

The steel blade is in lovely condition with very little tarnishing and so is good to use. ‘Bread Knife’ is etched onto the blade in gothic stylised typography. It also has the maker’s mark engraved, George Butler, who were also cutlers to Queen Victoria. The VR initials and crown are also visible still.

There is tarnishing to the steel blade from contact with water but otherwise it's in nice antique condition. It is perfect for day to day use in the kitchen or shown off on display as part of an antique kitchenalia or treen collection.

Length, 36cm; Widest point of blade, 3.5cm
