Known for its early American inspired designs and rootage in the Arts & Crafts movement, New York's partnership of Currier & Roby was a highly regarded manufacturer in the first decades of the twentieth century.

This example of their work, a serving fork, is marked number "65," of which there may have been a short line of items as the same number appears on other pieces. Other marks are "Sterling," an entwined "C&R," and the name of the retailer, Boston's "Shreve, Crump & Low Co."

It has two elongated, splayed tines, is solid silver, measures 6" long, and weighs just over .6 T. oz.

It has a tapered, faceted shank that is surmounted by a pineapple, or possibly pomegranate, finial, set above a grommet like detail. The base of the handle sits on three blocks, with a tongued attachment with the heel backside.

The overall sense of the design is architectural, direct, and clean, in keeping with the Arts & Crafts manner.

It is in mint estate condition, showing no wear or damage. The finish is bright and even, while the tines are free of bends, nicks, or burrs.
