$125.00 Price for the pair.

To a European scale, each of these two, matching, forks measures 8" long. They are very heavy at 5.2 T. oz. the pair.

The pattern is a "Tipt," with beveled edges along the margins of the handles. The ends are slightly upturned, and the tines are long and tapered.

Each piece is fully marked with a "lion" for sterling, a "leopard's face" for London, a date letter "e" for 1834-35, a duty mark, and "WJ" for maker William Johnson.

Unadorned save for feathered script "H" monograms, their appeal lies in their bold and durable, chiseled look.

They are in excellent condition, showing no polishing wear, and having straight and pointed, slender, tines. The finishes are warm, showing overall light surface scratches consistent with age. The marks are clear.
