Knives Can Talk On Ebay

The first Robeson knives were imported by Millard Robeson from England and Germany exclusively. This continued from 1979 until 1896 when Robeson began manufacturing knives in the United States. Since inception, the company has gone through several reorganizations & eventually ended up as a Queen Cutlery brand.

The men on the porch were the National sales staff at the time of the photo. They are identified on the back of the framed photo.

The photo sold on EBay some years ago for a princely sum, $700.00 or more. Pretty sure it went to a collector of Royal Rochester Ware. That particular area of ceramic/china collecting has an avid following.

I know the address of the building, but I’m pretty sure it is no longer there.

Thanks! "ceramic/china collecting has an avid following" - I have filled an extra bedroom with our collection. I'm in the process of downsizing and having to pack it all up.

Sometime this weekend I'm going to post my one remaining piece of Robeson cutlery - it's a set of knife and fork in the original box and need help dating it and how to prepare it for sale (needs a little help).

That building was located at 12 Saratoga Avenue.

I think I have used Google Street Scene before to find that, but it wasn’t there.

I have a Golden Pheasant coffee urn percolator, covered sugar and creamer. Still works. I don’t use it.

I have a copy of Tom's second book. I'll have to dig it out.

I bought the first one when it came out, it was a great book, I ended up passing it on to another collector a few years after I got it.

Is it for sale? If so, send me a private message with the price and I will get the info to the buyer of the first book.

Thanks! ::tu::
