Description

Ian Pickford notes of this rat-tail "a more rare type is the scroll decorated ribbed rat-tail," see Silver Flatware English, Irish, and Scottish 1660-1980, 1980, p. 75. Here it is combined with fine engraving; including, instead of the more usual mask or cherub head, a spread-winged bird.
