Our Reference #: 54843
An early Victorian pair of fish servers in sterling silver (both handle and uppers), the uppers are fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1857 and made by John Gilbert. The handles are hallmarked for 1855 and 1856.
Condition: Both perfectly solid & useable. The fork has a historical very good 'invisible' repair to its prong stem area through the hallmarks as evidenced by some loss of design and hallmarking. Knife has some bitumen showing around its hilt join area. General handle knocks etc. Hallmarks are fairly rubbed to handles. Silver weighs 171g and the fork 107g. Obviously handles are filled but there is a lot of silver here.
