Antique Sterling & Mother of Pearl Tiny Knife
This gorgeous little antique Victorian or Edwardian era knife has an ornate sterling handle with a mother of pearl blade. It is a small or tiny size, measuring only about 3" long. I'm not sure how this knife was used. It is possible that it's a caviar knife. I have read that mother of pearl blades were used so the flavor wouldn't be altered. Maybe this is a smaller size for more expensive caviar to keep people from taking too much - LOL. Good antique condition with a nice warm patina (tarnish) that we have left untouched. You will treasure this!
