“Amoladores” translates to “grinders” (plural), A firm, or shop that grinds (and probably sells) blades (knives, scissors, etc)
This type of riveting, was typical from the artisans/factories on the west coast of portugal, so this was probably comissioned to one of them by the Lisbon firm where they whould be sold.
