4 Chinese export forks in the fiddle, thread pattern, no monogram. These are nice, early and heavy pieces marked with an "L" and four pseudo English hallmarks. The L stands for Linchong or Lynchong (Canton, c. 1810-1830) per the Forbes book. Chait's book goes with the spelling Linchong. The set of forks weighs approximately 10.6 ozt, and each fork is approximately 8 1/2" long. They have the threaded edge on both sides of the fork. No monograms/crests, slightly worn tines from use (see photos). A very nice set for the collector of early China Trade silver.
