Can some kind person help me understand these markings?

I have a set of old pastry knives and forks in their original box. They appear to be silver with mother of pearl handles. There is a hallmark on the knives and forks and also an inscription on the clasp of the box. Can someone help me identify their age and origins? There are no other markings on the cutlery. Any help gratefully received!!! Thanks

This is a silver plate mark used by James Dixon & Sons of Sheffield. You can find a little more information here.
