An exceedingly rare and important pair of George III-period mahogany knife boxes of exceptional quality and condition. The boxes are of serpentine form with refined crossbanded and chevron inlay work along the edges and silver mountings on the façade. Great care was taken with the inlay work on the interior of the boxes, with intricate borders encircling each storage slot and an eight-point nautical star beneath the lid. Giving the set an air of lightness is the inclusion of feet upon which each box rests. The fact that they have survived more than 200 years in their superb, original condition, when many knife boxes were converted to suit other needs, is testament to their superior craftsmanship and beauty.
