Designs for fish knives and forks c.1900-03

RU DES MACKINTOSH, Charles Rennie; (Scottish; 1868-1928) This fish cutlery was for the Mackintoshes' own use. The drawing shows three variations for the fork. The version chosen, developed from the sketch in the upper half of design, follows the unusual pointed oval blade of the knife shown on the right.
