Rare Set of Mixed Metal Asian Knives, J Russel & Co. Silverware

A rare set of Antique Asian, mixed metal Knives by J Russel & Co. Each Knife has an Asian design and a fine and sharp blade, they are each decorated with a different motif on both sides of the handles and the designs include a Dragons, Foo Dogs or Buddhist Lions, a Caterpillar, Coy Fish and Samurais. There are 5 Knives plus the original presentation box, the original set had six, it would be harder to find another box rather than another knife so I didn't want to separate them. The knives are made of brass and or copper, or brass with a copper finish, it is hard to tell if the different colors are inlay or a finish, one knife has different colors on each side of the handle and the coy fish knife has spots of brass on the copper side, the fifth knife is brass with no copper..

J Russel was an early American cutlery company, they ventured into decorative items and these circa 1880s or so knives are a great example of their work, they are rare and hard to find. Each Knife measures 7 3/4" long. I don't think they were used very much at all because the blades are sharp, they are either silver or silver plate.
