George Sharp Antique Sterling Steer-head Pickle Knife, Philadelphia, c. 1870

Notify me when similar is available:

This is a very rare pickle knife in a dramatic pattern. The shaped handle has a wonderful cast and applied steer head executed in stunning detail. A cowbell hangs below.

The saber-shaped blade has some lovely hand engraved decoration and is lightly gilded.

For an example of a pickle fork in the same design, see Silver Magazine, Sept/Oct 1989, p. 37.

This rare serving knife is marked with George Sharp's lion 'S' lion mark along with the Baltimore retailer 'Geo. W. Webb & Co'. It measures 7 inches long, weighs 1.25 troy ounces and is in very good antique condition with light wear to the gilding on the blade.
