Learn More About This Trowel

Sunny Bank is the name of an estate in the English village of Endon. The Dr. Cooke Memorial School was built in the town of Burslem which is now part of the renowned pottery city of Stoke-on-Trent. The school was connected to the Bethel New Connexion Methodist Chapel and was named after Dr. Cooke who was a notable Methodist minister and theologian born in Burslem.

The Victorian era, named after England's Queen Victoria, lasted from the 1830's to the turn of the 20th century and was an era of abundance and beauty. A lovely example of the lush aesthetic of the Victorians is this elegant Fruit and Dessert Knife and Fork Set.  The handles are in lustrous mother-of-pearl, the ferrules are rendered in sterling silver and the silverplated blades and tines of each piece are exquisitely engraved with lovely embellishments.  Packed in its original wooden presentation box, this magnificent set is truly one-of-a-kind. 

Originally intended for use with a fruit or dessert course, this set is also ideal for appetizers, salads, a light lunch, even breakfast - any time the proportions of a dinner knife and fork are too large for the course or meal being served.  We are certain it will be a wonderful addition to your table.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In excellent condition. Box measures 11 7/8" x 8 7/8". Forks measure 6 3/8", Knives 7 3/8". Set includes 12 knives and 12 forks. Circa 1900.
