HOLD

Measuring 5 1/4" long and weighing just over 1.1 T. oz., this sardine fork is an early production example of International's 1903 Art Nouveau "Frontenac."

It is marked with the Simpson, Hall, Miller division of the company "helmet over shield" emblem, "Pat'd," and "Sterling." The end of the handle turns upward, as is characteristic of older production pieces.

There are six short tines on the 2" by 1 1/4" serving end.

It is in superb condition. Every detail of the lily motif remains fully articulated, including even the fine pollen flecks on the satin finish petals. The margins of the design have stippled surfaces that are without wear. The finish is bright and even.
