RARE, Lady Wernher WW1 1915 Xmas (Christmas) Gift, 12th Lancers Folding Military Utility Knife Number 533 By Isaac Ellis & Sons Ltd Primus Works Sheffield With Nickel Silver Engraved Scales. Sn 12893 - 12893
Early in WW1 a public fund backed by Princess Mary began sending brass Christmas gift boxes containing a variety of items such as tobacco and chocolate to British troops serving at Christmas 1914. Princess Mary’s initiative led to other aristocracy becoming involved sending gifts to British troops at Christmas during WW1. Often they would send gifts to Regiments that had a connection to their family. This historically interesting piece is a Lady Wernher 12th Lancers 533 Xmas 1915 folding military / utility knife by Isaac Ellis & Sons Ltd Primus Works Sheffield (from "Tweedale's Directory of Sheffield Cutlery Manufacturers 1740-2010" by Geoffrey Tweedale, Isaac Ellis & Sons Ltd. had a factory called 'Primus Works' on Bridge Street, Sheffield & that they owned the "PRIMUS" trademark). Sir Julius & Lady Alice Wernher had 3 sons, the eldest Harold Augustus was commissioned into the 12th Lancers in 1912, so it is not difficult to imagine that the Lord & Lady would have been partial to contributing to the betterment of the lot of their son, his fellow officers & others in his Regiment. We know that in 1914 the Wernhers used "Ingersoll Midget" watches as Christmas gifts to the Lancers & in 1915 it was military style pocket knives. This example measures 4” length when closed. This design is typical for a military style utility knife of those made by many Sheffield cutlers from around 1900 onwards. This knife has 6 functions: Spike (or punch), Corkscrew, Button Hook, 2” blade, 2 ¾” blade and 1 ½” blade/ can opener with thumb spur.The large blade is marked ‘Primus’ & ‘I. Ellis & Sons’. The hook is marked ‘Primus’ & ‘Sheffield’. The scales are nickel silver, the blades are undamaged but have staining consistent with age. Both scales are engraved, one side "FROM LADY WERNHER XMAS 1915" & on the other "12TH LANCERS - 533". The 9th/12th Royal Lancers museum in Derby has one example of these Lady Wernher Xmas Knives. Price for this knife worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 12893

Eventually, as Rodgers expanded, it would acquire surrounding property until the famous Norfolk Street Works occupied the entire plot.
