The Whiting Silver Company patented their famous Lily pattern in 1902. It is a sumptuous Art Nouveau pattern that is highly sought after. This salad fork is 6 1/8" long and weighs 1.2 troy oz. It is an early issue piece with the Pat's 1902 and R.D.1902 Whiting lion hallmark. The Fork is in excellent condition and comes from a very large well cared for set we recently acquired. There are no dings, dents, or signs of excessive use. The pieces in this service have had a very light M monogram professionally and carefully removed. It has not been been excessively buffed and retains an even patina and oxidation highlighted detail as shown in the photographs. We will be listing over 100 pieces of this pattern. We have been in business for 30 years. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Please email us with any questions.
