Interesting set of 6 ea small Georgian style pistol grip sterling silver tea forks and knives from the Thomas Bradbury & Sons company with hallmarked sterling silver handles and silver plated blades and forks.
Forks are 6”, knives 6 5/8” overall length
The hallmarks indicate this set was made in 1926 although the pistol grip handle style and narrow waisted curving blades with wide tips is that of the early 19th/late 18th century.
While the style of tea service these are made for is not so much part of everyday life for most of us these would make excellent oyster forks, and small knives for a setting to be used fo butter or a cheese course.
The blade/tines and handles are held together with old style cutlers cement or rozzil a mixture of beeswax, rosin and brick dust. It is a hard cement at room temperature but will melt at high temperatures, DO NOT PUT THESE IN THE DISHWASHER, or use them to roast mini marshmallows.
