J. Russell Green River Works Pewter Inlaid Cutlery 12 pcs.
Original box included

A very nice matching set of 6 (12 pcs) of J. Russell Green River Works cutlery from about 1870-1890.
John Russell founded the nation's first cutlery factory in Greenfield Massachusetts in 1834 along the Green River. He
subsequently moved his factory to Turner Falls in 1870.

Nicely inlaid with double pewter lollipops, the dark walnut handles are in very good solid condition with no separation.

Each full tang knife blade is stamped 'J. Russell & Co., Green River Works' and is in very good condition with some
tarnishing, stains and normal wear. The four-prong forks are in very nice condition with light wear and some tarnishing.

The knives are 9 1/8" in total length with 3 7/8" long handles (including the bolsters). The forks measure 7 1/2" in total
length with 3 5/8" long handles (including the bolsters).

Importantly the original box, although tattered and in pieces, is also included.
