Diana,

This is the silver plate hallmark of Deykin and Harrison of Birmingham, England made between

1895 to 1907. This fish knife and fork would be silver plated and not sterling because the marks do not

have the proper assay marks for silver.

The value of this set is $75 to $100.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit submit, thanks!
