O-Kante Floral Knife #2

This is a nice porcelain handled knife made by Meissen in the late 19th century. The porcelain handle is hand painted with two very nice floral arrangements as well as a few single flowers and the gold trim that uses ovals which gives this design the name O-Kante (O-trim). The piece is not marked but that is normal as the mark would be where the ferrule is placed. The knife displays nicely but there is some wear to the gold trim, oxidation to the metal parts and the porcelain handle has long crack going down from the ferrule end and then curving back up again as shown. It still is pretty solid and a nice and rare example of this design to find on a knife! The piece is about 8 inches long with the visible porcelain being about 3.125 inches long. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $39
