The Blades are marked ‘Joseph Rodgers & Sons Cutlers to Her Majesty’ suggesting the set was made between 1837-1901 (the reign of Queen Victoria).

The end caps and ferrules are Sterling Silver, fully hallmarked for Sheffield with the Lion Passant, Crown and the Makers Mark JR for Joseph Rodgers. There is no date letter present but from the styling of the Crown & Monarch’s Head (along with the remark to Her Majesty on the Blades), this dates the set between 1837-1901. Truly a beautiful set, completely original, hand restored by our Master Craftsmen. Each Handle is genuine Ivory shaped in the Barley Twist style and polished. Presented in the original, fantastic case. A very rare set in excellent condition that will only appreciate in value as time progresses.
