This cut glass knife rest has been in Grandma's china cabinet as long as I can remember. The concept of a knife rest always made sense to me as Grandma explained the use for it, as we dusted the china in her cabinet!

Knife rests were popular in the late 18th century through the early 20th century. Diners put their knives on such rests during formal dinners so as not to get food on fabric table cloths. This one originated in the Victorian Era, when companies like Gorham, Limoges, and Libbey produced models made of silver, porcelain, and glass.

This accessory is glass and features a faceted stem and diamond faceted balls with cut stars. This knife rest is in vintage condition. It has been used and shows some wear on the ball ends in a few spots where the cut glass shows some wear.

3.5 Inches long from end to end.

(My butter knife is not included in this listing. It is a prop only!) ;)

A charming vintage table accessory!

Best Wishes,
