Howard "Queen" Sterling Strawberry Fork
$ 24 each, four available
Later produced under the Mount Vernon nameplate, "Queen" originated with Howard of Providence, Rhode Island, and it is in fact Howard's four leaf clover mark that appears on this example. It is a 4 13/16" long, relatively heavy .4 T. oz., three tine strawberry fork. The pattern is distinguished by its robust leafy scroll border surmounted by a shell and a crown terminal. The backside has an Old English "E" monogram and in addition to the Howard mark, includes the words "Sterling," and "Pat. 1893." The condition is flawless.
