Westley Richards Carved Gift

A very generous gift from one of our friends in USA this year, a cutlery dealer amongst other things, was this hand carved piece of white stuff which has a distinct Ivory like feel. The piece arrived directly from the carver at the Dallas show and was firstly shown proudly to the man’s son who commented “Dad it is very nice, but they were established in 1812 you…”!

It makes a better story and has joined the other treasures in my apartment here. Thank you very much and after all what’s a couple of years in a couple of hundred!
