Ornate Antique Sterling Silver Stiletto / Awl

English *Hallmarked 1905

The silver handle of this pretty stiletto is embossed on both sides with scrolling floral designs. It has the British sterling hallmarks for Birmingham 1905 and the maker's mark for William Manton.

The cartouche has a couple of small dings but the overall condition is excellent with no other damage. It measures 4 1/8" long and the turned steel shank has a nice sharp point.

Stilettos had a variety of uses including unpicking stitches and creating eyelet holes in fabric that were then embroidered around in a technique called Broderie Anglais. They were also used to transfer design outlines to fabric, pricking paper patterns along the lines and then rubbing them with a pounce pad or colored chalk powder.

I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
