    Anyone know where these may have been made? No markings, except for dates, initials. Curious about value as well.

      I always first try my best to find some information, but have also found that occasionally if you reach out to a curator at a museum they may be able to help. You might want to research here and see if you send them the photos if they may be able to either answer your question, or maybe point you in another direction. They certainly look old. Very unusual script, and the one blade that looks like a darning kneedle or something for leather or maybe fur is quite unique. https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/sheffield-museum-knives.1363520/

      These are patterns which were made throughout the Mediterranean: Italy, France, & Spain, in the 18th and early 19th centuries. If I had to guess I would say France due to the sophisticated scroll-work engraving. Values from the top, down, about $200, $300, $400.
