This exceptional set is comprised of three pairs of meat skewers, each pair graduating in size.

Each skewer is ornamented with the contemporary bright cut engraved crest below a baron’s coronet.

The terminal of each skewer is embellished with a chased decorated shell design below a reed decorated circular ring loop fingerpiece.
