$55.00

Issued in 1891, Durgin's "Louis XV" is a dense design that reflects quite a different, and more complex, interpretation of the motif from Whiting's much simpler pattern of the same name produced in the same year.

This example is a 7 7/8" long, relatively weighty 1.0 T. oz., lettuce fork.

The overall condition is excellent and there is no monogram or removal. The tines retain a portion of an original gold wash and are pointed and free of bends or burrs. The pattern detail remains well-defined. There are two noticeable scratched areas on the backside handle end and heel of the tine area. These are located where the piece rests and may reflect placement at some time on an abrasive surface. Please refer to the image.

Marks are the Durgin "D" emblem and the word "Sterling."
