A 3 piece set of hand carved marine ivory Cutlery.

The knife, fork and spoon in this set are each made out of 2 pieces, joined at the point of the metal collar. It is likely that this set was made by a sailor. There is little by way of decoration, except to the top of the knife handle, but the pieces have a simple, naive charm. 19th Century.
