Question
I have what appears to be an old silverware set some mixed onieda ltd and goerge Hammond is but also in with those are six what look like either meat skewers that look like swords aprox 14 .5 in long the blade has a 800j mark on them the tops are quite a fancy crest deseign I was hoping you may know who the maker may be

Answer
Hello.

I don't recognize your description. The number, "800", often is associated with some European silver, especially in Germany. It means 80% silver content. However, that may not make sense when associated with the specific implements you describe.

Sorry I was unable to help.

Best wishes,

Jim
