Antique Gorham Sterling Raphael Estate Master Butter Knife - Fancy Blade
This gorgeous circa 1874 Victorian era butter knife is made of sterling silver in the Raphael pattern. The thing that's really special about this particular butter knife is that the blade was hand engraved with a beautiful aesthetic design. The top of the handle is monogrammed with the initial C. The butter knife measures about 8" long by just shy of 1" across the widest part of the blade. Signed with the right facing lion, anchor and initial G for GORHAM and also marked STERLING and PAT. 74. The weight is about 46.6 grams. It is in antique condition with age appropriate wear as seen including smoothing to the sterling and slight curving to the tip of the blade. We haven't polished this and there is some uneven patina (tarnish) as seen. You will treasure this!!!
