This 6 1/4" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., four tine serving piece is an unusual form sardine fork.

The shoulders are scalloped and sharply angular, as are the triangularly shaped center tines. The server margins are beveled, while the entire surface shows a brilliantly polished, dramatically smooth, finish.

Made by New York's John Wendt, whose characteristic "925 Patent" appears on the reverse, along with the name of the retailer, Boston's "Shreve, Crump & Low," the pattern is "Florentine."

A Renaissance Revival design, the ovoid, slightly pointed end, handle features a dense, Moorish pattern with a shield reserve on the front, and is largely plain on the reverse.

In strikingly fine condition, this is free of polishing wear or damage. The tines remain smoother, even, and pointed. Note:this has had a monogram removal, although that is not immediately obvious.
