Faster than you can say 'knife!' ...

... more things for eBay. Knives, this time. But I could do with more information on them than I actually have.

Have a look at the pictures (link goes to directory listing but it'll be obvious which pictures are of the knives!) -- does anybody have a clue (or think they might have a clue if they could see them closer-up) whether this is a particular style of carving, a particular age of knife, any idea what the wood is likely to be? Is there a word for this kind of matched pair of knives with one smaller than the other? I know nothing about them, I just bought them at a jumble sale because they were pretty.

If not, don't worry, I will just use lots of words like "decorative" and "interesting" and "unusual" and "antique". :-)
