I adore brown paper packages tied up with tape! Especially when they have a lovely image of HM QEII on the stamps! I got a brilliant package today with the most exquisite knife in it. I have a young friend getting married next weekend and this might be a perfect present for her. It’s an engraved fish knife, although it could be used for myriad other things, like cutting a wedding cake! It has a French Ivory handle, a silver ferrule and a monogram of either an M or a W.
The detailing on the knife is just fabulous, with all sorts of leaves, and other elements decorating the blade. Not to even mention the shape of the upper portion of the blade. The ferrule is marked with the lion passant for England, the crown for Sheffield and a K, signifying that it was made in 1902. You can read more about hallmarks here. What do you think of this knife? Do you like it as much as I do?
