$ 165 pair

Each of these two matching dinner forks bears full hallmarks for London, 1829, Sterling, and a "C pellet S" maker's stamp for Charles Shipway. They measure 8 1/8" long, large by American standards but not so for English, and are heavy, weighing 4.6 T. oz. the pair. They are a plain fiddle tipt design and without monograms or inscriptions, or removals of same. The condition is excellent. The only signs of wear are very slight tip wear on the tines, more so on one fork, and shallow knife cuts on the backsides of the tines. The finishes are outstanding.
