Vintage Mid Century Chrome Plated Deeply Carved English Butter Knife

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

A wonderful example of a deeply carved treen handled chrome plated English butter knife, dating from the early to mid twentieth Century.

The handle features the word “BUTTER” deeply carved and framed on it. The carving has hardly worn, meaning the detail is still very clear, which is quite rare for smaller wooden handled utensils.

The knife has a chrome plated blade with floral pattern which is in exceptional condition and looks like it has had hardly any ware apart from some very light surface scratches.

The butter knife is in overall excellent condition and is a wonderful piece of English kitchenalia. The only real sign of any wear is at the end of the wooden handle, where the wood has worn slightly.

Length, 18.5cm; Widest point of blade, 2.5cm
