Antique English Faceted Crystal Kniferest Star Notched England 1880s Barbell
This is an antique English hand faceted crystal kniferest or cutlery holder from 1880-1900.
The knife rest measures 1.75 inches high by 4 inches long by 1.75 inches wide and has star hexagonal ends, star edges, and a notched and tapered hexagonal bar.
There are a few minor facet chips but generally the hand made crystal knife rest is in very good +++ used vintage condition.
From an English estate collection we recently acquired.Knife rests were a creation to keep knifes and serving utensils off the table cloths so the cloths remained clean. With the victorian passion for beautifying everything, knife rests were dining table works of art and are very collectible. Presently undergoing a renaissance.
