Gorham introduced the Strasbourg pattern in 1897 and it remains one their most popular designs. The factory mark on this piece indicates that is the early pat’d 1897 mark. Moreover, the scrolling on the edge of the fork portion is also indicative of early production. A design change occurred shortly after 1900 and the scrolls were no longer added to the serving pieces. Note there are two sizes of fish serving forks. This is the large one and it is 8 1/2” long. The tines are 2 3/4” wide. It weighs 2.9 oz troy. It is in excellent condition with dings, dents, or other signs of excessive use. It is monogrammed with a fancy Old English font S. This is a stunning piece of old Gorham Strasbourg.
