This is an absolutely beautiful antique leaded crystal large knife rest or cutlery rest with a fluted bar.

The large knife rest or carving knife rest is quite old, dating to around 1850-1870 and has faceted ball ends in a dumbell or barbell shape.

This knife rest has been hand and not machine faceted.

The rest measures 4.5 inches long with 1.5 in diameter faceted ball ends.

It has only a few tiny facet chips and is really in very good condition for it's age.

Knife rests were popularized by the Victorians as a way to keep your tablecloth clean during dinner courses and reduced the number to be washed. Clever as well as decorative.
