A charming Set Of 12 Antique French Silver ‘Manches à Côtelettes’ or Lamb Cutlet Holder Implements decorated in the Rocaille style.
They are delicately decorated in Louis XV Style with floral scrolls and grotesques heads, as well as rosettes details.
They are part of all these implements that were created to facilitate meals and particularly to avoid to the diner participants any occasion to dirty their hands while dining….
Hence the little clamps would be fitted in the kitchen onto to the bone of the cutlet and screwed tight, so the guest would simply have to pick up the little handle and tranquilly, as well as cleanly enjoy the little cutlet!
The pieces are in perfect shape and come in their 2 presentation boxes, which are decorated by the same Count Coronet as can be found on the each holder.
The Hallmark is the Poinçon A la Hure for Paris 2nd Title (800/1000)- 1838 -1919– Paris
