This is a decent size Georgian-George III early 19th-century (c1800) Sheffield sterling silver & mother of pearl folding knife.

Genuine mother of pearl panels on both sides, with an inscribed cartouche.

The hinge is firm but has wobbles. The blade latches on at 90° and then 180° and gives a soft snap when being closed.

The blade still has a good gauge and thickness of silver - not flimsy. No dents.
