Rare Table Implement: Leg-of-Lamb Holder
Finely wrought of steel and ebony, this handsome and rare "manche-a-gigot" would allow the carver-at-table to hold steady a leg-of-lamb. (This problem of service unfortunately led to the rolled-and-tied boneless -- and less succulent -- one usually resorted at tables nowadays.Then, one has not that meaty bone for next-day's fine Scotch broth!) French, Second Empire, circa third quarter of the Nineteenth Century, approximately seven inches long.
