Silver and Flatware/R. Haris co. ser of 12 fruit knives


I have a Boxed set of 12  mother of pearl silver handles fruit knives by R Harris Co. Washington DC.

Hi, Carole.

I'm not sure what your question is so I'll assume it has to do with value and/or history of the set.

I don't know much about the company. It existed in the late 19th and early 20th cnturies.

The blades probably ar made of silver plate or stainless. Sometimes, this type of knife has a small sterling bolster between the blade and handle.

It's hard to say what the value is. I'd look at actual sales of similar sets on eBay to get a better idea. Here's an example: .

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
