1768 British Fish slice at the Museums Sheffield, Sheffield - From the curators' comments: "This is a silver fish slice made in London in the late eighteenth century. It was intended for use in separating and serving portions of fish. Earlier designs were more triangular and pointed and were often used to drain and serve whitebait. This server would have been used to serve portions of a larger fish."
