This example of Tiffany's "Antique Ivy" is a full size, 7 3/4" long, extremely heavy, 2.7 T. oz., dinner fork.
This has a rounded, upturned handle with ivy leaves engraved on the surface. In this instance, the reserve on the front is also inscribed with an American eagle surrounded by laurel branches.
