A knife with a triangular shaped single edged blade and a rounded handle with a ridged decoration near the top end. "TROCADERO / STRATFORD / MADE IN AUSTRIA " is marked on the blade.
The knife is from the Trocadero Hotel which was on the south western corner of Regan and Juliet Streets, Stratford. The large two storey building which housed the business, which was then trading as Prebbles's Private Hotel, was destroyed by fire on 6 April 1911. 11 people were injured in the fire which also gutted adjoining shops.
