It is so special to have a great Sterling serving piece. Here you have a large Meat Fork in Sterling Silver by the silversmith Whiting. This is a sought after pattern and this example is 7 1/4" long and weighs 51.3 grams.
It is in excellent estate condition without dings or repairs.
I was gifted a lovely coffee table book about the stylish use of vintage Sterling pieces suggesting that rather than being all matched it is so cool to have a mix of patterns. Sort of Bohemian chic.
