1906 Sterling Silver Cold Meat Fork by Alvin Silver Co Viking Pattern
Produced in 1906 may I offer this silver cold meat fork by Gorham Alvin Silver Co in the Viking pattern. There is a monogram within the shield that reads AMH (I think).
Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time (as well as some dust particles showing in my pictures). The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos, the main polish I leave to the new owner. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver
Hallmarks: Sterling (Alvin Hallmarks) Patent
Size: Length on a straight line is 8-1/2"; width at the tines is 1-11/16".
Weight: 66.6 grams
Final Comments: The auction site has one around $139 - the replacement site is out of stock.
NOTE: St. Louis is headquarters to one of the best consignors to my shop. They take in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items as possible. When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
