click for more pictures for item 2074f
Frank Whiting's "Marquis" embodies a French rococo sensibility. It is asymmetrical and features stylized acanthus leaves set in a large scale, flourishing manner against a stippled ground.
This example is a large, 8 5/8" long, cold meat fork. Consistent with the line, it is a robust piece, weighing 2.4 T. oz.
It is without a monogram or removal and in choice condition. There is no evident polishing wear, and the finish is lustrous. The tines are even, pointed, and free of bends, burrs, or nicks.
Marks are the Frank Whiting emblem, "Sterling," and "Pat'd July 9, 89."
