Offered is a very good Irish Georgian sterling silver table fork by Irish provincial silversmiths Carden Terry and Jane Williams, working in Cork circa 1807-21. This piece is hallmarked for Dublin, 1820, but was made in Cork by Terry & Williams. This piece is engraved with a period armorial of a bull issuing forth from a stone turret of some sort; I haven't researched the armorial to determine the family as yet. This fork measures just under 8 inches in length and weighs a full 60 grams or so; it is well made. Condition overall is good, with some wear to one tine and some knife marks on the back of the tines. There is also a very minor disturbance on the front of the fork (not visible on the reverse, which would be the side up on the table), where a rubber band was in contact with the fork briefly. There are no splits or repairs. All in all a nice example of an Irish Georgian fork, and a provincial piece at that!
