Set 12 Butter Knives
A good vintage set of 12 butter knives, each blade marked "Atkinson Bros Sheffield".
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. Our knives have ivorine handles fashioned from xylonite, and have 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.
