$185.00 Price for the set of ten.

With elongated handles, these ten, matching, oyster or seafood cocktail forks measure 7". The group weigh a substantial 7.7 T. oz.

The pattern is Durgin's 1890 "Shell." Having a slender, essentially tubular, central shank, the ends where the raised shells are situated are broad and rounded.

These embody a refined elegance. The design is understated, while the highly tactile finish has a satin smoothness.

The tines are delicately-scaled, with the outer two of the three splayed outward.

The backsides of the handles have Old English "H" monograms.

They are all in choice estate condition. Free of polishing wear, the shell designs remain well-articulated. The tines are all absent bends, burrs, or nicks.

Marks are Durgin's "D" emblem, "Sterling," and "S.C. & L," for Boston's carriage trade Shreve, Crump & Low Co.
