A pair of unique Vintage Bakelite kitchenware Fruit Knives in a two toned Bakelite is presented. The Bakelite Fruit Knives are each marked ROSTFREI SOLINGEN.
Circa 1930’s-40’s, each vintage Bakelite fruit knife measures 6 ¾ of an inch in length, including the Bakelite handle. Each Bakelite handle measures 3 inches in length and ¾ of an inch at its widest portion towards the bottom. The very bottom of each Bakelite handle is cut on the diagonal, so very classically and sleek and Art Deco in appearance. The basic coloration of each Bakelite handle is a rich medium brown colored Bakelite with swirls of darker tones throughout. The bottom portion, where it cut on the diagonal, has two inlaid striped areas of contrasting Bakelite in a wonderful cream corn colored Bakelite, with a center area of the same brown colored Bakelite that is the basic color for each knife. The collars are quite interesting, being white metal, but etched, which enables them to stand out. They are secure and tight on each knife. BE SURE TO SEE ALL THE PHOTOS.
The back of each vintage knife is hallmarked ROSTFREI SOLINGEN, which literally means “rust free,” and indeed they are completely rust free!
Vintage Bakelite kitchenware flatware sets, desert sets and fruit knife sets, etc. hallmarked ROSTFREI SOLINGEN, were manufactured in Germany in the 1930’s and 1940’s and are sought after by collectors today of Vintage Bakelite kitchenware and flatware. This pair of vintage Bakelite fruit knives can most certainly be used as well as appetizer knives! We have shown as a demonstration, how fabulous they looked propped up in a bowl (not included)!
This outstanding example of vintage Bakelite ROSTFREI SOLINGEN kitchenware set is in pristine condition and appears to have never been used. The can be used and enjoyed today for serving fruit for which it was intended or other bite size eatables! This Bakelite set tests positive for Bakelite with a bright and shiny patina.
