At 1.0 T. oz., this 6 1/8" long youth fork is heavy for its size.

Made by Frank Smith, whose "lion and S" mark, along with "925/1000 Fine" appears on the backside, the pattern is "Earle," issued in 1890.

"Earle" is a dense, rococo, design featuring swirling acanthus leaves, scrolls, and floral elements on the handle front, and a plain backside.

There is a reserve area which has never been engraved or monogrammed.

In good condition, the only evidence of use is some rounding of the otherwise straight and even tines. Pattern detail remains well-defined and the finish shows a soft patina.
