A very nice set of ivory handled knives and forks. There are 6 of each. They are made of carbon steel with ivory handles. Dating from the mid to late 1800′s, these are marked , Pratt Ropes co American Cutlery. They are in good condition not bent or dented. There are age cracks in the ivory handles on most of them. There is some discoloration or spotting on the steel which is common on carbon steel. They could be polished but I prefer to leave items as found. The knives measure 7 1/2 inches long the forks are 6 1/2 inches long.
