Christmas Turkey Carving Set
A four piece 'bone-handle' carving set by Margress of Sheffield, consisting of a carving knife and fork, a sharpening steel, and a matching bread knife. And in such pristine condition, it looks like this set has never been used. Back in the day, it was marketed as "The Hygienic Carver Set", as it boasts a clip-on guard that can be detached from its carving fork to make cleaning after use easier.
Our vintage ‘bone-handled’ carving set is both good-looking and functional, and its renewed popularity make them a cool addition on today’s table. The carving knife, fork and bread knife have ivorine handles fashioned from xylonite, and high-polished stainless steel blades. This elegant style of flatware was made from 1920 through to the 1950s in Sheffield England, which was then the heart of the world’s cutlery industry.
