Antique Faceted Crystal English Barbell Carving Kniferest 1850-1870s Table Accessory
This is a large master or carving knife hand faceted crystal knife rest made in England during the mid Victorian era, during the 1850-1870s.
The hand cut hand faceted crystal knife holder measures 1.5 inches high by 4.75 inches long and is in a barbell shape with a hexagonal bar and faceted lapidary ball ends.
The knife rest has been used quite a bit and has numerous fleabites on the facets and beveling of the bar but is in good ++ used vintage condition.
The knife rest is a wonderful piece of Victoriana and the ingenuity of a gadget that is both a practical way to keep the tablecloth as well as an aesthetically pleasing decorative item.
