This is a lovely Victorian lettuce fork that dates to the late 19th Century. It is hallmarked STERLING 925/1000 Harris & Shafer. Harris and Shafer was a famous jewelry firm that marketed silver in Washington D.C. between 1880 and 1938. I believe this to be one of their earlier pieces.
The fork, which is three pronged was called a lettuce fork, and can can be used to serve a variety of dishes. It has a beautiful repousse design which is primarily floral.
The piece has a monogram that looks like NL. It is 8 3/4" long and weighs 1.50 troy ounces. It is in good antique condition, with a very slight bends on the edge of the two outer prongs; hardly noticeable.
