Answer
Hello.

I am not familiar with these pieces. I can say that they probably are made of stainless steel, or perhaps silver plate. The reason is based on the knife's construction. It appears to be all one piece. Sterling is too soft for knife blades so most sterling pieces like this would have a two-piece construction with sterling being used for the handle and stainless steel for the blade.

I doubt the value is great.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
