This wonderful boxed set is in excellent condition.
There are 6 knives and 6 forks. The knives are beautiful enhanced with fancy scrolly brite-cut decoration. The forks have a more linear design.
The handles feature what we believe is faux ivory or celluloid handles. There is grain visible in the material but not a crosshatch design and it is most likely that the handles are celluloid as stated and are being sold as such and not as ivory.
In the inside lid, the navy blue fabric is imprinted with the retailer - "Cutlers & Silversmiths Bruford & Hardy Plymouth". We were unable to find out anything about this company which might have helped date this set.
The presentation box is in a faux navy blue leather. The case is in worn condition.
The knives measure 7 3/4" and the forks 6 3/4". The box measures 9 3/8" x 7 3/8" x 1 1/4".
