Measuring 7 3/8" long and weighing just over .8 T. oz., this long handle olive or pickle fork is a clean example of Towle's "Old Newbury" pattern issued in 1900.
The serving end has two hooked tines that are splayed outward. These are joined to a cupped heel that has three piercings.
Without a monogram or removal, the piece is in choice estate condition. There is no polishing wear and the finish is bright and warm. The tines are free of bends or burrs and remain even and pointed.
Marks on the reverse are the Towle "lion in a T" emblem, "925/1000," and "Sterling."
