This set of 10 knife rests is probably of animals created by Benjamin Rabier, the famous French children’s book author and also the master mind behind the Laughing Cow. This set is made of silver plated metal and depicts various humorous animals in various poses. There are two extra pieces that are missing a fair amount of plating. They will be included as they are part of the set, but in damaged condition. One of the damaged pieces is a dog, which looks remarkably like Louky, the dog in one of Rabier’s books. Each piece is marked PD. Condition of the 10 is good, with also some wear to the silver plate. Each measures 3 1/8” by 7/8” by 1 ½”.
