We have similar Fork, Knife, and Victorian items, which would pair nicely with this piece, for sale this week. Item Description by: Cait P. Markings: “E & Co” and “M” in diamond cartouche for the year 1851 on the back of the handles, Tested, and Guaranteed. Country of Origin: United Kingdom. Brand: Elkington & CO. Gram Weight: 308.4 Grams. 925 Sterling Silver Plated over Base Metal. Main Stone Measurements/Color. Accent Stone Measurements/Color. Item Measurements: The knife measures 14″ in length and 2.25″ at its widest. The fork measures 10″ in length and 2.05″ at its widest. Collectible Type: Fish Fork & Knife Serving Set. Men’s or Women’s: Unisex. Notable Features: This silverware set was handmade during the Victorian era. 925 sterling silver plated over base metal, the silverware set features. A knife and fork used for serving fish and accented with chased patterns in the Rococo style. The Rococo style emerged from the French royal court during the 1730s boasting whimsical designs of curling lines and curved edges, which would go on to spread throughout Europe and North America, remaining popular for centuries to follow. The large size of the fork and knife in this set indicates that they were used for serving fish and would have been available to only the most wealthy, who could afford the costs associated with such high quality silverware and to have many different sets of silverware for different purposes. As indicated by the markings on the hand, the set was made by Elkington & Co in Birmingham, England in 1851. Elkington & Co was. A flatware company known for their innovative silver plating techniques, which they used to not only create flatware and decorative items, but also jewelry and cutlery. The fork and knife both feature elegant designs of curling lines and leaf like patterns, which would have been very fashionable during this time period. Additional floral motifs adorn the fork. The knife does not have a serrated edge, as one might expect, due to its use in pulling apart and serving fish, making a sharp edge unnecessary. Instead the edge of the knife was designed with and asymmetrical curved edge. There is a monogram on the handle of both the knife and fork of what appears to be the initials “CA”. These letters were chased by hand during the Art Nouveau era, as the style the lettering indicates, suggesting the set was passed down through a family who had them monogrammed at a later date, most likely circa 1900. An incredibly well-preserved piece of family history from the Victorian era, this fish serving silverware set would make a valuable addition to any antique jewelry collection. Don’t miss your chance to preserve this piece of cultural history. Damage: Age appropriate wear. Tarnish on the sterling silver gives this piece an antique quality which we believe is quite lovely. This listing is for the item only. The Victorian era took place from the year 1836 to the year 1901, which was the span of Queen Victoria’s reign. Queen Victoria’s style was undoubtedly influential on the fashions of her country and ultimately led to three distinct jewelry trends emerging from the era. The first of these three styles was the Romantic period. The Romantic period was impacted by the Georgian period, which preceded it. The second period was the Grand period, which was primarily defined by mourning jewelry and the trends surrounding it. The final period was the Aesthetic period. The Aesthetic period was more lighthearted and airy than the previous periods and focused on aesthetic beauty and joy. This era features floral, natural, and feminine motifs, and utilized chased gold designs, enamel, and seed pearls. The late Baroque or Rococo period prevailed in the 18th century. The period was known for its substantial use of asymmetrical designs, curves, gold, and witty, whimsical themes. Both men and women at court wore sparkling gemstones set in gold during this period, as well as colorless glass pastes and pearls. Colored gems were often highly foiled behind them to enhance the depth of color. Jewelry was often created with naturalistic, floral designs. Rococo jewelry also featured embossed and engraved floral and feather designs on metal. Chasing is a metalworking technique that uses a nail-like tool and hammer to hand etch patterns onto a metal surface. This process creates a design that is sunk into the front of the surface using indentations, grooves, and channels. Chasing is thousands of years old and was a very difficult and time-consuming technique that is still used by metalsmiths today.

A Memento Mori (Latin’remember that you must die’) is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death. The expression’memento mori’ developed with the growth of Christianity, which emphasized Heaven, Hell, and salvation of the soul in the afterlife. In the Christian context, the memento mori acquires a moralizing purpose quite opposed to the nunc est bibendum (now is the time to drink) theme of classical antiquity. To the Christian, the prospect of death serves to emphasize the emptiness and fleetingness of earthly pleasures, luxuries, and achievements, and thus also as an invitation to focus one’s thoughts on the prospect of the afterlife. A Biblical injunction often associated with the memento mori in this context is In omnibus operibus tuis memorare novissima tua, et in aeternum non peccabis the Vulgate’s Latin rendering of Ecclesiasticus 7:40, in all thy works be mindful of thy last end and thou wilt never sin. ” This finds ritual expression in the rites of Ash Wednesday, when ashes are placed upon the worshipers’ heads with the words, “Remember Man that you are dust and unto dust you shall return. This became a fashion in the tombs of the wealthy in the fifteenth century, and surviving examples still create a stark reminder of the vanity of earthly riches. Later, Puritan tomb stones in the colonial United States frequently depicted winged skulls, skeletons, or angels snuffing out candles. These are among the numerous themes associated with skull imagery. Memento mori has been an important part of ascetic disciplines as a means of perfecting the character by cultivating detachment and other virtues, and by turning the attention towards the immortality of the soul and the afterlife. In the European devotional literature of the Renaissance, the Ars Moriendi, memento mori had moral value by reminding individuals of their mortality. In the late 16th and through the 17th century, memento mori rings were made. A version of the theme in the artistic genre of still life is more often referred to as a vanitas, Latin for “vanity”. These include symbols of mortality, whether obvious ones such as skulls or more subtle ones such as a flower losing its petals. Not all memento mori works are products of Christian art. Skull art is found in depictions of some Hindu Gods. Lord Shiva has been depicted as carrying skull. Goddess Chamunda is described as wearing a garland of severed heads or skulls (Mundamala). Kedareshwara Temple, Hoysaleswara Temple, Chennakeshava Temple, Lakshminarayana Temple are some of the Hindu temples that include sculptures of skulls and Goddess Chamunda. The temple of Kali is veneered with skulls, but the goddess Kali offers life through the welter of blood. In very good condition!
