Antique Loxley pastry forks set of 6 by Sheffield of England in their original box with original paperwork. The box corners and edges have light wear and one side is torn.

These forks are electroplated nickel silverplate. Marked "MS. LTD EPNS". This means that the firm of Maurice Stables in Sheffield, England., designed these forks and they are top quality electroplated nickel silver. This pattern was exclusively designed exclusively for Around-the-World Shopping Club members.

Great quote from the paperwork :
"The registered name for these forks is "Loxley". When we asked Mr. Stables where he got the name for the setting, he stated that it came from the valley and river of Loxley whee an ancestor founded the company generations ago by setting up his first grinding wheel.
But we prefer to to think that Robin Hood gave this silverplate setting his own name. If you'll recall the story of the outlaw of Sherwood Forest. You'll remember that on his return from the crusade, Richard the Lion-Heart restored Robin his title of Earl of Locksley and the land thereof- which very well might have included the very ground on which the stables factory stands today.
That's the kind of romance we moderns like, and we hope you'll cherish your setting as a little bit of timeless England in your home."

These forks are in great condition and are 5" long.
