Greetings, I cannot get the knife to show in one picture - not sure what is wrong, so I apologize for the 3rd picture. This knife is 7" long. Some of the details of the mark will not show up either, but it reads W.H.S. Co with the o raised and underscored. Just below is stamped GERMANY. On each side of the handle the stamp STERLING appears. The paper scroll is on both sides as well, with a monogram within on one side.
Likely belonged to the g-grandparents. Born 1880's, married prior to 1917, died 1940's. I have seen some references to the internet of similar mark, however it is on purses - have not found any reference to flatware or other silver. I keep redirecting to Saart which had a similar mark, however they are an American company, and the WHS was within a globe.
Thank you in advance.
