Cutlery Holders Set Of 6 Art Deco Cats Or Dogs Silver Plate French 1930s Kniferests
This is a set of 6 silver plated art deco figural knife rests or cutlery holders made in France in the 1930s.
The knife rests each measure 3 inches long by 1 inches high and are in superb, very good +++ used vintage condition.
I am still debating whether they are cats or dogs. The faces look like cats with a bow, but the tail is a bit short. I have had dachsunds before with the same body from the same era, so...the jury is still out.
They are part of a knife rest collection I acquired in England. I have had individuals before but was so thrilled to find a set.
A great item of kitchenalia as well as a wonderful way to keep your table cloth clean by supporting your knife.
Knife rests are enjoying a renaissance for use on dining tables, tea tables...I have even supplied knife rests for use at sommelier tables!
