ADDITIONAL INFO: This is a Clover Brand sleeveboard lobster that is branded W. H. Morley & Sons. W. H. Morley & Sons was a brand name imported by Adolph Kastor who also owned Camillus Cutlery Company. According to Goins’ Encyclopedia of Cutlery Markings, the W.H. Morley & Sons brand was only important between 1913 in 1927. For a 91 year old knife this will lobster is in remark condition. The liners are nickel silver and they are milled. When this was made this was a top line knife for this brand. The handles are genuine Mother-Of-Pearl with no cracks! It is hard to photograph Mother-Of-Pearl capture the fire in the pearl, especially in my limited photographic skills. The pictures do not do this knife justice! This knife is a beauty and a fine addition to any collection!
