This listing is for a fabulous antique sterling silver fish knife. Made by Whiting & Sons, it is in the Imperial Queen pattern, patented in 1893. This is a detailed, ornate pattern with a scallop shell on the end of the handle and at the point where the handle meets the knife, as well as swirls, flourishes, embossing on front and back and an organic design on the body of the knife itself. Measures 10 1/2″ and weighs 89 grams. This is a rare piece in a highly collectible pattern by a quality maker. Knife is in very good antique condition, with very minor wear/scuffing and tarnishing commensurate with age and light use. What a wonderful gift for the holidays! Fresh to the market!
