Let's crawl into our first new offering of 2024 at a turtle's pace with this handsome utensil, originally intended for eating (gasp!!) turtle stew, which was a trendy and popular dish among those folks who were of a means to spring for the tureen, a set of twelve forks, and twelve dishes all to match, back in 1890.

See item 20207411 at the Rhode Island School of Design's Gorham collection for an example of the tureen, and item 2020406 for an example of this fork, or simply search "Gorham Terrapin" on their website for more info.

Length 5 1/2 inches, weight 1.37 Troy ounces, immaculate original condition, no monogram.
