A quality knife and spoon once used in the management offices of Harland and Wolff where the Titanic was built. The butter knife, 8.5″ long, is marked on the blade, “Gladwin Ltd, Sheffield, trade mark,” and bears the interlocking HW logo of the Harland and Wolff Shipyard. The spoon, 6.75″ long, bears the same logo on the handle and the words, “Gladwin, Ambassador Plate” on the underside of the stem. Cutlery of this quality would not have been used by ordinary shipyard workers but instead would have been used by senior management officials of the shipyard. RR Auction COA.
