c. 1860 ~ Silversmith John Polhemus / Polhamus
These 2 hand-chased Tiffany & Co. Sterling knives are a heavy 2 ounces each.
Each knife measures 7-inches.
Note the thick edge of the handles which contribute to their weight.
These knives are monogrammed with a gothic letter "C" and are marked
Tiffany & Co. on one side and on the reverse J * P, standing for the New York silversmith John Polhemus who provided Tiffany with many very attractive designs. There is slight design wear at the very top edge of each knife and the overall condition consists of expected-use-wear, nothing serious.
Beautiful patina from close to 154 years of hand-polishing.
