$95.00

Measuring 5 1/4" long and weighing just over 1.1 T. oz., this sardine fork is an early production example of International's 1903 Art Nouveau style "Frontenac."

It is marked with the Simpson, Hall, Miller division of the company "helmet over shield" emblem, "Pat'd," and "Sterling." The end of the handle turns upward, as is characteristic of old production pieces.

There are six short tines on the 2" by 1 1/4" serving end.

It is in superb condition, indicating it has had little to no use. Every detail of the lily motif remains fully articulated, including even the fine pollen flecks on the satin finish petals. The margins of the design have stippled surfaces that show no wear whatsoever. The finish is bright and even.
