Mother of Pearl handled knives were made from 1870 until the turn of the last century. The pearl came from the development of the China trade in the 1870's. Most Ferruels' ( the band between the pearl handle and the knife) were sterling and most knife blades were silverplate. They were used to go with many of the sterling and plated flatware patterns.
