The Amsterdamse School is famous because of the architecture of the buildings in Amsterdam. But there where also artists who designed in the same style
furniture and interiors of the houses in the years of 1920 in Holland: with an expressive
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.

This 6-3/4 inch tartan rule is in excellent condition except for missing its black label to identify the tartan - my best research picks Royal Stewart. It was made in Scotland in the last quarter of the 19th century (circa 1880), and its function would be to roll over blotted ink (rather than to measure); also it could be used to draw a short straight line. This is one solid piece of sycamore wood covered in the printed tartan paper.
