Consisting of a very large fork and knife, this master fish set features beautiful britecut workmanship and unusual spiral handles.
The pierced fork is decorated with what appears to be water lillies and the pierced knife blade is decorated with a water scene with boats. The banded area between the working ends and the handles features a gadrooned design and does test as sterling silver.
The fork measures 10 1/2" and the knife, 13 3/4". I have been unable to determine the handle material. I do not see the crosshatched pattern for ivory and so it might possibly be bone. It does not seem to be composition or celluloid.
