Captured WW1 Carved Horn Cutlery Knife Set France 1917 Pottier Martin Lillers
A most unusual set of 10 knives (2 missing) in their original hard case. French made and marked Pottier Martin Lillers to each blade.

Well fitted carved horn handles as shown. What makes to set very interesting is the hand scrawled note pinned inside the case that explains the knives were a souvenir from a captured city in France I can only imagine the extent of looting and pillaging that must have occurred in war torn Europe- this lovely old set of knives being just one example.

Showing their age however each knife remains in good overall shape. The case rather more battered. Each knife is 8 inches (20cm) Weight in case 520 Grams.
