Wow! This pattern is stunning, one of the prettiest Victorian floral patterns!
This large, 7 1/2" long sterling silver meat serving fork is in the gorgeous American Beauty pattern by George Shiebler, one of the very best American makers. This pattern, first introduced in 1896, features roses. Roses down the front of the handle, more roses on the back, even a spray of flowers on the back of the tine area. The details are bold, crisp and 3-d. There is a fancy, intertwined script monogram. This wonderful fork is in extremely good condition.
