This lovely silver serving piece is in very condition with no damage or restoration. Stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks. There is a slight “ripple” to the surface of the server.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
The serving slice was first made in silver in the second half of the 18th century, the early examples having triangular blades, usually pierced with scrolling motifs and often engraved. This serving slice, perfect for cake, was originally intended for serving fish.
