Offered is a scarce early American coin silver table fork by Philadelphia silversmith and armorer Frederick Hoffman (1786-1886), whose silver work dates primarily to the 1820s and 1830s. This piece features a well-struck maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram to the reverse. It measures about 7 1/8 inches in length and weighs a good 48 grams. Condition is fair overall, with some surface wear and tine wear from normal use but no dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a good usable piece and a fine example of an early American coin silver fork!
