A superb peg and worm in very fine condition. Fleur de Lys and scroll decoration to the gold mounted handle. A very small French hallmark is visible at the base of the handle on one side.

The twin wire helix is in perfect condition with almost all the chrome intact. A similar sewing spike is currently for sale on on the UK website of Irish Silver. This also would have been in an etui.
