Victorian Sterling Silver Meat Skewers / Letter Openers

Victorian Sterling Silver Meat Skewers / Letter Openers. These large antique Victorian English sterling silver meat skewers/letter openers have a tapered form with a circular ring loop finger piece. The surface of each skewer is plain and unembellished, apart from the featured hallmarks to the reverse. These impressive meat skewers are an exceptional and large example of their type. 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. These antique skewers are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the reverse surface of each skewer are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck very deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
