Sheffield Sterling band on Knife J.A.S. maker

Postby hpidaves » Sat Jan 05, 2019 3:16 pm

I have a 9 1/2" knife with silver plate blade and sterling silver band. The hallmarks on the band -- "CROWN LION lower-case-smooth-a" date the sterling to 1824, Sheffield. I have a few questions on this piece:

- Is the date of 1824 possible given the electro plated nickel silver blade (marked EP * NS)?
- What is the handle made of?
- Who is the maker (J.A.S.)?

Is it possible that the sterling was made at a much earlier date than the rest of the knife?

Thanks!

Thank you Phil!

The date chart I was looking at didn't go past 1916. That explains a lot.

Would the handle be Bakelite?

Thanks.
