Newcastle Sterling Silver Meat Skewer/Letter Opener Antique Georgian

Newcastle Sterling Silver Meat Skewer/Letter Opener - Antique Georgian (Circa 1770). This antique Georgian sterling silver meat skewer/letter opener has a tapered form. The surface of this antique solid silver meat skewer is embellished with the contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting out of a naval crown an eagle with wings extended, holding in the beak a wheat stalk. The reverse surface is plain and unembellished apart from the featured hallmarks.

This exceptional example of silver flatware was crafted by the renowned Newcastle silversmith John Langlands I. The original use of this item was purely as a meat skewer. Due to its form, this piece may certainly be used as an effective letter opener. This antique solid silver meat skewer is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The piece bears surface marks as to be expected, in keeping with age and use.

The hallmarks struck to the reverse surface are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.
