1920s Handcrafted Mother-of-Pearl Caviar Spreader

About

A handcrafted mother-of-pearl spreader, used for serving caviar on toast points. Mother-of-pearl or animal horn is traditionally used when serving caviar as its texture will not in any way taint the taste or damage the delicate form of the caviar egg. Custom states that caviar should not be served with a metal server because metal will impart an undesirable flavor. Each spreader has beautiful pearling and good balance, circa 1920s. Excellent.
