4 of the forks were made in 1837 and the other 8 were made to match the set in 1937. This set is done in a classical Fiddle Thread and Shell pattern. Each fork has raised shell designs on the front and back of its handle and on the back where the shaft meets the tines. The front or back of each handle has an interesting, hand engraved bird of prey crest. All twelve forks are marked with the leopard's head for London and the lion passant for sterling silver.
4 forks are marked with a date letter D for the year 1839, a duty mark of Queen Victoria's head and have a maker's mark for Mary Chawner and 8 have a date letter B for the year 1937 with a maker's mark for Israel Freeman & Son Ltd. This set is in great overall condition. There are no dents, no breaks, no splits, no monogram removals and no repairs. Each fork measures 6 3/8 inches long and the combined weight of the set is 668.8 grams or 32.7 ounces. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
