A plate of good food is lost without a good knife and fork. Well-proportioned, well-balanced and beautifully designed flatware is a joy to use and is the making of a good meal. Our vintage ‘bone-handled’ knives are both good-looking and functional, and their renewed popularity make them a stylish addition on today’s table. The knives have ivorine handles fashioned from xylonite, and have high-polished stainless steel blades. All forks and spoons are silver-plated EPNS (electro-plated nickel silver).

Length of dinner knife: 24.5cm

Country of origin: England

Year of manufacture: 1930

Each knife blade marked: The Alexander Clark Co Ltd, Sheffield

Material: stainless steel and xylonite, and EPNS (electro-plated nickel silver)

Condition: very good, with some fine scratching to the knife blades and silver plate - yet no more than would be expected from cutlery of this age.
