Knowles Brite Cut Sterling Silver Master Butter Knife

This is an ornate master butter knife in sterling silver by Knowles, circa 1880. The pattern is unknown but described by others as with bird on handle. It is a detailed intertwining of leaves and delicate scrolls with a bird flying, about to land on the handle. The blade is satin finished and bright cut with leaves and a spray of flowers. There is a monogrammed "Y" on the reverse of the handle. The piece is marked 10 Sterling on the back. There is not a makers mark but I have found the other pieces in the same pattern marked Knowles. It is 6 3/4" in length and weights 22 grams. J.B & S.M Knowles was based in Providence, RI. Knowles was manufacturing from 1875-1905, and would eventually be purchased by Mauser.
