A Lovely Rocaille Set of Antique French Silver ‘Manches à Cotelettes’ or Lamb Cutlet Holder Implements.
They are delicately decorated in Louis XV Style with lovely Rocaille scrolls on the handles.
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 good shape and come in their presentation box.
