SOLD

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver table forks made by Pittsburgh silversmith Isaac Garrison at his silver spoon and fork manufactory at 136 Wood Street. Garrison worked from the late 1840s through at least the 1870s, and is perhaps the only maker in Pittsburgh to have created a proprietary, native pattern - specifically, this "Acorn Pattern", which was made by him alone, although sometimes retailers' marks appear on pieces in this pattern.

These forks each measure about 7 1/8 inches in length, and the pair weighs a heavy 100 grams in total. This pair of forks are an excellent representative example of this pattern, with little wear to the pattern, the period engraved script monograms, or the maker's marks. The maker's mark here is one of at least four or five known for Garrison, and generally only appears on this pattern, not on fiddle pieces. There is a bit of tine wear, but nothing egregious. There are no splits or repairs. Please review all of the pictures. All in all a lovely example of this man's wares!

Available singly at $50 each, or as a pair at the price stated.
