Hi - just purchased this set of 6 knives and 6 forks.

Thought them to be fish set but upon closer look the top of the knife has serration along the tip for approx 1.5 inches.

Having trouble attaching picture so maybe someone will know by my description in case photo does not work.

The set is made by WR Humphreys & Co - late 1800/early 1900.

Along the top edge of knife engraving all along.

Thought that fish knives didn't have any serration and that was only for meat knives.

Knife measure 7.5 inches long and has buttermilk coloured handle.

Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm very new to this silver collecting and would like to know more about what I have.

Thank you for your time and help.

Christine
