Cutlery Rest Faceted Crystal And Sterling Rings WHS London 1904
This is a gorgeous antique Edwardian era English cut crystal squared and tapered barbell knife rest or knife holder with hallmarked sterling silver rings for WHS, William Henry Sparrow London 1904.
The waffle, diamond and star cut crystal knife rest measures 3.75 inches high by 1 inch square ends with a tapered middle.
The knife rest is in very good +++ condition with very minor facet chipping and some dents on the sterling silver rings at each end around the star cut ends.
Knife rests were developed to showcase wealth on an Edwardian or Victorian table as well as keep the tablecloth clean.
An elegant way to do so and very collectible.
