American sterling silver individual cheese pick knife, c.1900.
This very scarce form has a floral, double struck handle decorated with buttercups or pansies. Unfortunately, we cannot identify the maker's mark or the pattern.
This unusual piece is 5 1/2" long and weighs 11 grams.
The excellent original condition and clear, crisp detail, with no monograms, removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
The soft, warm, original antique finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.
