Knives....ID please? Silver or not?

I will be doing a few posts this morning as I bought some silver banded flatware and assumed that meant silver…it is now dawning on my this is not necessarily the case. So here is my fist post…6 knives…any silver content?

The blades are electroplate, probably by Roberts, Fead, Mosley & Co of Sheffield. The ferrules may be silver but I can’t see any marks in your picture.

There are no marks…so I think they are not silver…part of the group I sent back because they did not appear silver banded.
