  • $28.00


This is a pressed glass English carving knife rest in the shape of a large barbell with faceted ball ends.

The knife rest or carving knife holder measures 4.5 inches long and is 1.5 inches in diameter at the end with a thick middle bar and dates to 1890-1910.

The cutlery holder has no cracks but does have 2 tiny fleabite chips on the facets from use and a shallow chip on one end.

Knife rests were an important part of a Victorian or Edwardian table service and propped your dinner knife up to keep it off the tablecloth.

They are becoming a fashionable addition to dining and tea tables today again.
