China and Serveware
Pair of 18th century knife boxes are made from traditional mahogany with burled veneers and inlaid trim. Angled, hinged lids open to reveal an inlaid star with additional inlaid detail. Eight vertical slots with inlaid edges are designed for tip-down knife storage. Keyholes for the locks have decorative escutcheons. Subtle feet elevate the pair. From a 1986 Los Angeles Times article discussing 18th century knife boxes: “Knives, forks and spoons were expensive status symbols in the early 18th-Century home. Few families could afford flatware for a large group. By the end of the 1800s silverware had become available to the upper middle class, and special boxes were made to display and protect the valuable silver properly. Knife boxes were made in the Sheraton or Hepplewhite style to match the furniture designs of the day. Knives were kept in tall boxes, the point of the blade down, and there were partitions to keep the knives from bumping, scratching or dulling the blade… Most knife boxes were made in pairs so one could be placed at each end of the dining room sideboard.” This pair is amongst hundreds of antiques that are available at our showroom in Grandview!
