This is a rare sterling silver waffle knife or hotcake lifter. It is a very versatile piece and can be used to serve many different types of food. This piece is in a plain pattern. There is no maker's mark, so we can't identify the exact pattern. It appears to be similar to Pointed Antique or Wadefield. This piece is monogrammed as shown, probably J, on the front and engraved 1920 on the back. It measures 8 3/8" long and is in extremely good condition.
