Silver and Flatware/pearl handled


I have a set of 6 knives, 6 forks and a small knife.  The are marked Landers (warrented quadruple plated) with an ivy design, pearl handled.  They are in a red cloth roll bag.  Wondering maybe a bit of history or worth.  I have the will dated 1933.
Thank you for your time in advance.

The only company I have found with "Landers" in the name is Landers, Frary & Clark. They made various items between 1865 and 1950. I do not know when your set was made. However, pieces like this normally do not have a great value - maybe a dollar or two per piece. However, there are always exceptions. For example, this looks like an exception: .

This sale is more in line with my estimate:

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
