Knife Display & Storage Cases

¶ The universal utility of this piece of furniture renders a particular description not necessary. Those on plate 38 may be made of mahogany inlaid, or of satin, or other wood at pleasure.

Knife Cases

¶ Four designs for vase knife cases are given on plate 39: they are usually made of satin or other light coloured wood, and may be placed at each end on the sideboards, or on a pedestal; the knives, etc., fall into the body of the vase, the top of which is kept up by a small spring which is fixed to the item which supports the top; may be made of copper, painted and japanned.
