A finely detailed pair of French silvered pewter Knife Rests in the form of two birds, thought to be eagles.
The birds are fighting over a piece of fruit and are late 19th Century with finely engraved wings, claws and heads making a rare pair of rests.
The bottom of each is marked "REX. MADE IN FRANCE. REX" and they measure 3.5" (80mm) long x 1.25" (34mm) high.
An interesting gift for someone involved with birds of prey.
