Six vintage Butler Of England EPNS Oyster forks. In perfect, probably unused condition. In the original box which is a bit worn. I bought them in France where I live. There is some reflection from my camera on the photos.

The ‘Butler’ makers mark was originally granted to William Butler in 1768, and was taken on by his sons after his death in 1816. The company was then known as George & James Butler and could be found in the Trinity Works on Trinity Street. The image of James Butler as a regency gentleman in a top hat was used as a trademark in adverts from 1919 onwards. By 1850, however, the connection of the company to the Butler family ended, when the last of George Butler’s sons died. The company retained the name but it was run by brothers William and Albert Andrew and their partner Henry Rowe, and by Robert Belfitt after 1870. In the 1864 the firm moved to a new premises on Eyre Street, which was renamed Trinity Works after the site they had moved from. The company finally liquidated in 1952 but the name was eventually bought by Arthur Price in 1993.

We will always point out and photograph, anything that is noticeable. We always try to buy our items, in the best possible condition but as vintage, they are often not perfect.

We will describe things as best we can, and always list additional photographs for you to consider before buying. If you have any questions please ask. Dating items can be tough and we try as hard as possible, to be accurate but we cannot be responsible for any errors, so please make your own independent inquiries.

If you are not happy with your purchase, please contact us within five business days after receiving the item. If you decide to return the item, it must be posted within those first five days. It must be unused, in its original packaging. We will refund you via Paypal. You will have to pay the cost of shipping the item back to me.
