American Sterling Silver Cake Serving Forks 2 in the Rosette pattern by Whiting, c.1890
These elegant and scarce forks are 7 1/2" long and weigh a total of 78 grams. Each has an ornate monogram MC on the front of the handle.
Several sources on the internet give the date for this pattern as 1890, although we believe it to be earlier by 10 - 15 years.
Monogrammed as described above, the original condition and clear, crisp detail, with no removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
The soft, warm, original finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.
