Simpler Knife Rests

1920? Two simple knife rests or porte couteaux, about 3⅜" inches long, made from folding over a plate of metal to form a triangular tent.  On one panel of each is a fable scene: 2P or TH.  Unknown source.

The designs on these two are really quite intricate and include a good background: the houses, trees, and fences along the road of the race in TH and the vegetation along the trail for the iron and clay pots.  I wish there were some markings to identify the maker of these lovely knife rests!
