SOLD

Offered is a very interesting American coin silver table fork by Taylor & Hinsdale of New York, and bearing the mark of that firm as well as manufacturer's marks made to resemble English marks, albeit only vaguely. This piece perhaps was made to match an English set, though, given the form and weight - it measures about 8 inches in length and weighs about 63 grams. The armorial on this piece is period and is fascinating - it is of a rather wild-eyed priest holding a cross in one hand and a rosary in the other. I've not seen the like before! Condition on this piece is good overall, with some marks to the reverse (see pics), but minimal tip wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of crested early American coin silver!
