A rare 18th Century silver handled carving duo. Each handle is in pistol grip design and the knife has hallmarks of Hibernia and the crowned harp. The fork handle is unmarked but tests as silver. The knife blade and the fork tines are polished steel and although not an identical pair, they are similar in design and appear to have been a set. To the knife handle is an Armorial. An unusual example of 18th Century Irish silver serving ware.
Jeff Sims Antiques has clarified that the Irish Georgian Silver Meat Fork & Knife (LA227867) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1770
Good, with no splits or holes. There are extensive surface blemishes to both handles, tines and blade. All commensurate with age and use.
