These are examples of rarely seen silver plated French pie markers or brochettes, either in the shape of a pheasant or a chicken.

Sourced from a country house in France, these were used as pie markers, to show guests whether they were eating pheasant or chicken pies. They were also used a brochettes, or meat skewers.

Sweet little pieces of antique French kitchenalia, the detailing of the figures at the ends of the skewers is very nice. In good condition for their age, both markers have suffered some tarnishing and have bronzed in colour, although this adds to the patina of them both, The detail of both the pheasant and the chicken can still be clearly seen..
