P.L. Taylor (NY) "Gothic" Coin Silver Youth Fork
This coin silver youth fork is 6 1/8" long and solid weight, at just under 1.0 T. oz. It is marked "P.L. Taylor" for Pardon L. who operated circa 1845-60 in Brooklyn, New York. The pattern is Gothic in style, and reminiscent of Gale's design of that name and about the same period. This is engraved "F.J.C." in a feathered script. It is in very good condition, with slight tip wear being the only evidence of use.
