Horn handled knives and forks


Code: F19360

A set of six, 19th century, horn handled knives and forks. Although being sold as a set of six, only three knives and forks are shown in each image as there are slight differences. They are all exactly the same shape, with the same shaped horn handles. There is a natural variation in the colour of the horn. Three of the knives are marked ’TAYLOR’S CELEBRATED WITNESS SHEFFIELD’ around and eye. The other three have a different mark which is difficult to make out. All of the forks are marked ’STEEL’. The knives are 20.7cm. long and the forks are 17.2cm. long. They date from c.1880. There is slight loss to the horn on one knife and one fork but other than that they are all in very good condition.

Price includes postage within the U.K. Shipping to the U.S.A. add £25. Western Europe add £10.
