The earliest English silver fish servers were individual pieces, produced during the 18th Century, and resembling a trowel in shape, with a pierced and symmetrical flat blade, and a wooden or silver handle. During the 19th Century the blade shape changed, and towards the beginning of the Victorian period a large fish serving fork was added to make a set. The most sought after designs today are those with intricate pierced or engraved silver blades and tines, and ornately detailed silver handles, or those with exquisite carved ivory handles.
