The hallmark is Sheffield 1881. From the left we have:
- crown: Sheffield Assay Office mark
- lion passant: English sterling silver standard mark
- "O": date letter for 1881
- Victoria head: duty mark
- RM over EH in a diamond: maker's / sponsor's mark for Martin, Hall & Co (the initials are those of Richard Martin & Ebenezer Hall, the original partners in the company)

I would expect a butter knife like this to sell on the well-known internet auction site for 20-40.
