Title By-knife fork for Highland dress dirk
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1820
Price £100.00

This would have been part of a by-knife set from the scabbard of a Scots dirk. Together with a small knife of matching design, the set would have been mounted on the outer face of the scabbard, normally one above the other. The dirk would have been mounted en-suite with a large citrine as a pommel.

Here, the hilt is of bog oak, the nicely carved strapwork with silver studs at the intersections. The pommel is of quartz mounted in a facetted gilt setting within a silver frame. There is a little age shrinkage and minor wear to the wood, also some minimal scatches to the stone. However, all in all, the piece is in exellent shape for its age.
