Silver fish slice

This silver fish slice was made in 1821-2 by Forrests, a firm of Edinburgh silversmiths.

The fish slice has an English fiddle pattern handle.

With the development of increasingly sophisticated eating habits, especially from the 18th century onwards, more items were required for the dinner table and these were made in an increasingly diverse range of patterns.
