Help with hallmark on fish knife and fork

I would appreciate assistance please in interpreting this hallmark that appears on both the fish knife and fork in serving set.

Thank you!

This is not, strictly speaking, a hallmark as your fish knife and fork are electroplate, not silver. The characters in the mark are HB&H which are the initials of Harrison Brothers & Howson, a Sheffield company.

Thank you, Phil. I want to sell them and needed to know what to say about them.

Would you have any idea from the mark or your experience how old them might be (circa)? Thanks again.

Dating is very difficult with electroplate but “early 20th century” is probably a fair estimate.
