French Antique Silver & Gilded Seam Ripper Knives

French Antique Silver & Gilded Seam Ripper Knives 

Sold on August 29, 2011 for $55.63.

Seller stated these little antique seam knives are both French. One is solid silver and has the boar's head French silver hallmark for 800/1000 pure silver. It has a striking hammered surface with a raised design. 

The other is gilded metal with an embossed flower basket design on both sides. They are both in excellent condition with no dents, repairs or other damage. They measure about 4 1/4" long and the steel blades are in nice condition, intact and sharp. They were probably once part of French sewing sets.
