Compare with other Internet vendors located out there in a bay of eeeeeees who would propose to charge you one hundred and nine monies per fork!!!
A hand wrought item with Garrard's usual exceptional quality, the subtle hammer marks are clearly visible from the interior. No monogram, a few very minor sins but fine overall condition. This little gem holds a pint of liquid without even breaking a sweat-- we think it would make a superb bar pitcher...
You can sit this in the middle of your Danish Modern dining room table and simply say "ahh" every time you walk by...
As our friend Don Soeffing has recounted in "The Battle of the Birds" (Silver Magazine, November/December 1995), production of this pattern was short lived, because W & H lost this particular battle against Tiffany for infringement of their design pattern...

This item is superb in both design and execution. Though we always hesitate to say "flawless condition," one would be hard-pressed to find fault...
