American Coin Silver Fruit Knife w/Embossed Geometric Design
This wonderful decorated coin silver fruit knife is circa 1850-1890. This was actually made for the lady of the house and the term "fruit knife" is a polite way of referring to a pocket knife. One blade was for cutting and the other used as a nut pick; it could be used for various household purposes. The case is fully embossed with geometric designs as well as a blank cartouche that could have been engraved with the owners initials. The case measures 2 3/4" in length and is stamped "coin" on the cutting blade. Excellent vintage condition and weighs .83 ounce.
