A wonderful English nicely carved wooden bread knife, dating from the latter part of the 1800s.

This Victorian treen bread knife, with its deeply carved “BREAD" handle is in wonderful condition for its age. With a finial end, the quality hardwood handle is still nice and clear and has a wonderful mellow finish and feel to it, and is attached to the blade with a quality joint, highlighting the handmade nature of this piece. The carving remains crisp and clear.

The steel blade is in fair condition. As is normal with knives like this, it has tarnished lightly after contact with water. However, an etched 'Bread Knife' in gothic stylised typography can just be seen, as can the VR mark, highlighting this was made during the reign of Queen Victoria.

There is a small amount of loss to the finial end but this doesn't detract from what is an excellent piece of antique treen kitchenalia which will look lovely on display but is also good for ongoing day to day use.

Length, 31cm; Width, 2.5cm at widest point of handle and blade
