S/5839 Antique Treen 19th Century Solid Boxwood Cake Slice
A most tactile and unusual solid boxwood cake slice, having a double sided blade and end that has a sharpish edge. The whole is slightly curved, which fits the purpose for removing a slice of cake or sponge. The shaped handle to one end has an off centre suspension string hole for hanging purposes. It is an item we have not come across before and has a most excellent rich honey colour and patination.
