French ivory is an early man-made material created to resemble expensive natural ivory. This faux ivory is made from celluloid which dates to the 1860's, and was widely used until the middle of the 20th century. It can be differentiated from natural ivory by it's parallel lines rather than the cross-hatched lines found in genuine ivory and by its lighter weight. French ivory can be moulded easily, making it an ideal substance for a wide variety of items including decorative dresser sets, handles for flatware, hair accessories and gaming pieces. Although it has some drawbacks and requires thoughtful storage and care, many antique and vintage items made from this early plastic are highly collectible.Type: Knives and forksQuantity: 6 of eachCountry of Manufacture: EnglandManufacturer: Barker BrothersMaterial: Silver Plate and French IvoryFeatures: Each is monogrammed with the letter "G"Size: Knives are Approximately 7" (17.7 CM) Long; Forks are approximately 8.25" (20.9 CM) Long Condition: No cracks or splits International Buyers are welcome!
