Dating a Wostenholm & Son razor

Thanks to user Deathknell, I am in possession of a Wosterhom & Son Pipe Razor. I am working on restoring it to shave ready. It had some pitting on the blade, rust on the tang, small chips on the edge, and no scales. General searching has told me that these are pretty good blades, so I plan on starting work on the other blade I received first to work on my skills before jumping into the Pipe razor.

My big question is how old this razor is. Most of the references I find for the company list it as Wosterholm & Sons, versus the non-plural on this blade.

Here are some pics of the blade. Sorry for the poor lighting.
