$90.00 Price for the pair.

Each of these two identical place forks measures 7 1/16" long. They are heavy, with the pair weighing 3.4 T. oz. combined.

Dating from the late 19th century, they are high quality items stamped "Hennegan, Bates Co." for the prominent Baltimore firm, and "Sterling."

The pattern is an engraved "Lily," which is more accurately "lily of the valley," and is one of several variations of the same theme made by numerous manufacturers. This work, largely bright cut, is set against an enhancing satin matte background.

The reverse has a tipt end and a thumb drop on the heel.

Each piece has a fancy, feathered script "M" monogram.

They are in superb condition. There is no identifiable wear and the finishes exhibit a warm and rich patina. The tines remain straight, pointed, and free of bends.
