1840s Black Forest carved knives
A pair of knives with intricately carved wooden handles, dating from the 1840s. They both have an inscription reading "ANNO 184..."
The carvings are slightly different, but both are of birds, possibly mythological, and are consistent with carvings from the Swiss Black Forest region.
The blades are metal, also carved at the handle, and show signs of their age, with blunted tips.
A stunning addition to any collection.
