$180.00 Price for the set of six.

All matching, each of these oyster or seafood cocktail forks measures 5 5/8" long, with the group weighing 3.0 T. oz.

Made by Whiting circa 1885, the pattern is commonly referred to as "Peony Twist" referencing the large, single blossom that appears on the handle end, which is joined to a turned stem. The flower area is arched and has a satin matte surface on both sides.

These have three tines, the outer two of which are curved and hooked. The heel area is embossed with a starfish, and is finished in a bright gold wash front and back.

Never monogrammed, the set remains in essentially original condition. These are without evident wear, detail remains well-defined, and the tines are straight and even.

Marks on the reverse include the Whiting "lion" logo, "Sterling," and "26," and "10" on the backside heel of the tine area.
