A set of six chrome plated hatelet skewers. This type of skewer was used for ornamenting meat, fish and also desserts, when taking the food to the table.

The ends of these skewers are very classical in form, with stylised leaves and scrolls. They are unmarked and they date from c.1890. These are good quality examples and they are all in very good, usable condition.
