Casparus Seth was a successful silversmith in Leeuwarden, Friesland, a prosperous city back then. He became a master in 1767 and died in 1821. He used this master stamp in the period the guilds were still active. The knife was probably made in the late 18th century. The master stamp is well preserved.
The knife is in good condition and is suited to be used as a pocket knife. The blade is in well working order, the construction is sturdy.
The flowers and the female figures are well made and show the craftsmanship of Casparus Seth.
