Antique Boxed Set of Six Green Bakelite Handled Butter Knives, Silverplate Blade
This listing is for a boxed set of six British silver-plate butter knives with vibrant green Bakelite handles. Wigg Goldsmith & Jewelry Company of Newmarket--address given as merely High Street. There is some slight variation in color from handle to handle (overall shade, not differences in coloration on a particular piece), they are in very good condition in terms of knicks and scratches, considering their age and use. A listing for the Greenberg hallmarks states Israel Sigmond Greenberg, listed in 1884 at 44 Frederick Street Birmingham, moved as I. Greenberg & Co to Vyse Street, Birmingham in 1889. The firm was converted in 1909 to a limited liability company under the style I. It appears that the set was made before 1909, when a letter B was added to the hallmark, beneath the ISG shown in a shield on these knives according to my admittedly limited research. The knives do seem Art Deco to me, so they could be somewhat later.
