Six "electro plated nickle silver" pastry or pie forks in the Loxley pattern made by the Maurice Stables Company of Sheffield, England. Marked "M.S. LTD", "EPNS", "SHEFFIELD ENGLAND" on the reverse. Forks are small, only 5" in length overall and 3/4" at the widest part. Forks are in excellent undamaged condition with just the usual age appropriate wear.
An internet search did not turn up very much information on the M.S. LTD company other than name and location. Sets of these forks in their original boxes are fairly common in the U.S., especially on eBay, but not so much on eBay in the U.K. Suggested production dates ranged from 1935 through 1955.
