This is quite a unique Antique 19th Century Dessert Server, Austro-Hungarian made CA.1830-1850.
The unusual Blade has a scenic tableau featuring a young Shepherd with a Lamb and his Dog, seated under a Tree. Near the tip of the Blade is a very curious figure that appears to be a Jester, wearing a curious conical Hat embellished with Bells!! A foliate Leaf connects the blade to the handle. The Handle is carved in fine detail in a corkscrew fashion.
The approx. size is 13" long x 2.5" wide at the Blade, and it is in excellent condition....a fine piece for your Cabinet of Curiosities!!
The Hallmark on the Blade is "WCH&S" with a Crowned "13" silvermark.
