Presented is a fine quality set of 12 antique ivory handled knives. The carved ivory handles have nice graining on the ends. The blades are attached to the handles with pins, so they are very secure. The knives have the old silver plated carbon steel blades. They were made around the last quarter of the 1800s, certainly over 100 years old.
The knives are marked Meriden Cutlery Co. on the blades.
The knives are in good overall condition. All of the ivory handles have some splits, but they are structurally sound. The handles are tight to the blades. Four of the handles have some staining. Apparently something was sitting on top of the knives that stained the ivory handles. This may be able to be sanded down or polished off. One of the blades has a significant amount of corrosion, but the other 11 blades are in great shape with only minor wear to the silver plating on the high points. There are no chips, no breaks, and no repairs.
The knives are 9 1/8 inches long.
