Both Deco and delicious this set of four knife rests from 1930s France are the perfect way to have both birds and beauty at the table with a touch of whimsy. Made by the Societe Francaise D'Orfevrerie D'Art (French Company of Silver Art) each is crafted with a silver plate base and sports a detailed pewter bird that’s held on by a screw. All measure 3 1/8 inches in length, 1.25 inches in width and are about 1 7/8 inches tall. The birds included are a Cockatoo Parrot, Pelican, Owl and Penguin. They are marked “Argit” and are in good condition aside from light use scratches. They are rather weighty as well and can also double as place holders with an erasable marker. A fun flock for your fabulous fete or tea party, perch them properly and let the compliments begin…..
