English Silver Fish Server

  • London, 1923 by Crichton Brothers
  • Dimensions: 12 3/4 inches length

A Fish Server was originally a serving implement, shaped basically like a trowel, and used for serving and dividing fish at a dinner table. The flat surface on a fish server suggests that it was intended for use with food such as meat, cake and breads as well as fish. The earliest examples of fish slices were made about 1740.

A handsome English Silver Fish Server in the ‘Trifid’ pattern. This is a very modern – looking pattern that is quite elegant in design and dates back to the 17th century. The word trifid means divided or split into three parts, which can be seen on the handle and helps explain its name. This English Silver Fish Server is a very attractive piece, made by an exceptional silversmith in the 20th century, and can be used quite frequently.
