Offered is a 5 3/4" sterling fork in the pattern, "Putnam" by Watson of Attleboro, MA. The fork has a hand engraved "M" on the end. It is marked Sterling and the Watson hallmark on the back. I don't know what this was used for. It reminds me of a sardine fork in length but it doesn't have as many tines as a sardine fork has. Maybe it's just the pattern and it's different. Anyway, a lovely piece in great condition. Perfect for canapes.
