$235.00 Price for the set of eight.

Each of these eight, matching forks, measures 7 3/16" long, while the group weighs a substantial 11.6 T. oz.

Marked "Sterling," they were retailed by Boston's Crosby & Morse (1864-69) and carry forward some of the design sensibilities of earlier coin silver flatware.

They have plain handles with rounded and upturned terminals. The lower sections are engraved in a period design with a central palmette motif, while the ends have script "EL" monograms. The backsides are unadorned.

The are in very good estate condition. There is slight overall polishing wear, with softly patinated surfaces. The tines remain well-form with negligible tip wear and minimal knife cuts on the backs.
