thumper your Merrimac set is a good one especially as it has the 'tumbler' (drinking glass that is not glass). Most of these sets of eating utensils do not have a container for drinking from. Your pics are not good so nature of the handle material cannot be guessed at. Some sets have ivory handles but more are imitation ivory.

What is the handle material on the Muller and Schmidt?


The handles are some type of plastic not celluloid.

Dimitri that Aerial sure looks fine. Hope the celluloid sticks around for another 100 or so. Love the auto motif on the handle. What's on the pile side?

Does anyone know the value of a Robesons Pocket Outfit #50 in very good condition, from about 1930-1950? under the Robeson discussion, there are pictures posted of one of these kits, but that one in at least 20-30 years older than mine-
any insight would be greatly appreciated, with thanks..

Nice kit Nigel! Welcome to AAPK! ::welcome::
I have the same kit in the same leather wallet but the name is A.K.B. The Kit, or something like that. I will have to find it and take some pics. I found mine in a house I rented in the 1970s. I had forgot I even had it.

Here's an old fork and a corkscrew that apparently belonged to a set.

Thank you, Dimitri.
Unique kit you showed last.
Corkscrews are rough on covers, (cracking) but this one has held up.
