This sterling silver master butter knife is truly stunning! The front of the handle features an intricate wreath and flower pattern that is very ornate. However, the blade is magnificent! It is gold washed and features a profusion of engraved leaves and a pretty flower. This blade is also gold washed. This wonderful piece measures 7" long and is marked Gale & Willis 925 sterling. According to my nifty book of American silver marks, this company was listed ca 1840. However, I believe that this pattern dates to ca 1860. This beautiful and useful master butter knife is in extremely good, unmonogrammed condition. It would be a special addition to your collection.
