Scope and content

The carving set has a matching fork and knife with plastic handles. The fork has a retractable hinged safety guard. W.W. Harrison & Co. stamps make the manufacturing date of the set in the late 1800s. The inclusion of a "z" date hallmark on the handle of the items could suggest a manufacturing date of 1892.
