References assign an 1880 introduction date for Whiting's "Antique Tip" aka "Antique Tipt" pattern made in sterling, but this fork is an example of an earlier, 1860s, version made to a coin standard.

Measuring 7 1/8" long and weighing approximately 1.2 T. oz., this is a lunch, or simply a regular or place, piece.

It is characterized by a narrow shank that broadens widely, comes to a point at an unturned end which has a raised scroll and diamond drop that looks something like a fleur-de-lis.

This is engraved with an elegant script "EMB" on the handle front.

The backside is plain save for being imprinted with Whiting's "W and lion" emblem and "Sterling."

In outstanding condition, the surface has a particularly appealing, satisfying to the touch, brilliant, finish. It is without bends, scratches, or polishing wear, and the tines remain straight, even, and pointed.
