Mappin and Webb fork and knife set

Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone could tell me about this set? I’ve scoured through old M&W catalogues but I can’t find anything. Also wondering if these handles are made of Ivory(!!!) Could make it difficult to move with me to another country
Thanks in advance

The metal component of this fish knife and fork set is electroplate so it is highly unlikely that the handles are ivory - bone is far more likely.

Thanks Phil,
That makes more sense
