marked only "sterling 4," these are probably Whiting or Gorham, circa 1868. They are of exceptional quality and workmanship, each arm comprising a grapevine (complete with added "age" marks!) with two applied grape leafs and a dangling cluster of grapes. A splendid example of Victoriana, and similar in theme to cheese scoops with figural mice, as their form defines their function.

Length 7 5/8 inches, weight 3.82 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition.
