Victorian Carved English Bread Knife with Flower Detail & Steel Blade by Fattorini Bros

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

A nice example of a late Victorian carved bread knife with carved flower detail.

Made by Fattorini & Sons, jewellers who were based in Yorkshire, the steel blade is engraved ‘Bread Knife’ in ornate script and features the maker’s name also engraved. The blade is nice and clean, and is also extremely sharp.

The handle has detail of a carved flower. Originally this would have been very deep but this has now worn with use. However, the patterns and leaves are still identifiable.

The knife is in fair condition for its age. Although the carving has faded, it is still a nice feature. The blade is also clean and very usable. The collar between the blade and handle is also loose, although this doesn’t affect its use.

Length, 34cm; Width, 3cm.
