$85.00

A rare form variant, this 4 3/16" long, nearly .5 T. oz., Tiffany & Co. lemon fork has two pointed outer tines, and a shorter central, raised one described by William Hood in Tiffany Silver Flatware as a "spur."

The pattern is "Clinton Engraved," which features an Adamesque, flower and swag motif delicately etched on the otherwise plain (with a tipt backside) surface of "Clinton."

Never monogrammed, this is in flawless condition, absent polishing wear, having an even finish, and free of nicks, burrs, or bends on the tines.

Marks are "Tiffany & Co.," "Sterling," and "M." This last letter mark is some unexpected in that it was used only until 1891, which may indicate that "Clinton Engraved," with an unknown introduction date, predates "Clinton" which was issued in 1912.
