$62.00

An early, harder to find and more sought after than later production items, this 5" long, approximately .7 T. oz., Art Nouveau period "Francis I" lemon fork is marked with Reed & Barton's "eagle, R, lion" emblem, "Sterling," and in very fine, precise lettering set along the edge, "Pat. June 25 07."

Newer pieces are marked "Reed & Barton."

It has three, elongated, tines joined to a pierced heel.

The backside is engraved "GSP" in a delicate script.

It is in mint estate condition. The fruit, flower, and acanthus leaf design shows no polishing wear, with all details remaining clear and well-defined. The tines are straight, even, pointed, and free of bends, nicks, or burrs. The overall finish is bright and even.
