SOLD

length 7 inches, weight 1.30 Troy ounces, monogrammed "T" (?) reverse, very slight wear to engraving but fine overall condition.

Krider's early work was sometimes whimsical (note the asparagus stalks in enlargement number four). His later output tended more toward the elaborate (see our listing 2242). But his quality was consistently good, as one may see here in the engraved decoration.

Though asparagus tongs had been common since the early 1800's, serving forks from this era (circa 1855) are scarce.
