A wonderful authentic example of Victoriana for the ladies. This antique pocket or fruit knife is in beautiful estate condition for it's age. We estimate the age to be right around 1880-90.
The blade is marked with the word "COIN" and the number 26 below it. The decorative coin silver case measures 2 1/4" long X 5/16" wide. The blade is sharp and measures 1 1/2" long. The blade does not appear to have been sharpened or over sharpened. The blade is free of any nicks or chips.
We did only a hand polishing of the case and the blade. There is a nice natural patina on the case. If you wish to clean it further it will polish up nicely.
