Today we are offering a lovely set of 12 Edwardian knives with nacre or mother of pearl handles. The blades of the knives are silver plated with a set of 5 pseudo hallmarks which appear to be “H B & B S.” They are also marked “Made in England,” dating them to about the turn of the century. They have embossed bands where the handles meet the blades. The knives measures 7 1/2″ and are fairly sharp. The handles are carved nacre, or mother of pearl with wonderful luminescence.
