Antique Silverplate & Ivorine Fruit Knives - Set of 6

$125.00

Found at market in England, we are taken with the refined charms of this wonderful set of knives. Originally intended for use with a fruit course, this beautiful set is also ideal for appetizers, salads, a cheese course, even breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea - any time the proportions of a dinner knife are too large for the course or meal being served.

Produced by the long-shuttered Sheffield silver company of Cooper Brothers & Sons, the knives are finished with hallmarked sterling silver ferrules that indicate the year of manufacture: 1908. You'll notice that the pointed end of the knife blades make them the perfect petite knives for cutting and segmenting fruit. The delicate engraved details on each blade give the set an elegance that is unmistakeable.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition. Box measures 6" x 8", Knives measure 7" in length.

Learn More About Ivorine

Ivorine is a name often given to celluloid. Celluloid was invented in 1862 and is generally regarded to be the first thermoplastic. It was useful for creating less costly jewellery, jewellery boxes, hair accessories and many items that would earlier have been manufactured from ivory, horn or other expensive animal products. It was often referred to as "Ivorine" or "French Ivory". It was also used for dressing table sets, dolls, picture frames, charms, hat pins, buttons, buckles, stringed instrument parts, fountain pens, cutlery handles and kitchen items.

Vintage and antique items made in celluloid are collectible today and increasingly rare in good condition. Celluloid is still used today for the production of table tennis balls and guitar picks.
