Vintage English Butter Knives (Set)

R140.00

Looking at the style of today’s knives, I can only assume that they’re butter knives. I know ordinarily you’d only have one butter knife for a table, but presumably these were designed so that each guest had their own knife – perhaps it was considered more lavish this way! Or perhaps I’m completely wrong, and the knives serve another purpose – who knows! Regardless though, this is a really handsome set of knives! It’s difficult to tell from the photographs, but the bakelite handles are a very deep green in colour – almost black – which is quite unusual, with the stainless steel blades being near immaculate! In fact I doubt our knives have ever been used before – the box (which sadly is missing its lid) may be rather tacky looking, but the knives are pretty much in mint condition! Yay!

Dimensions: Each knife measures 17.5cm long
