The surface of this skewer is embellished with a contemporary engraved initial ‘R’ below the plain circular ring loop finger piece.
The reverse surface is plain and unembellished apart from the featured hallmarks.
This fine example of antique silversmith was crafted by the renowned London female silversmith Mary Chawner.
* 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.
