$130.00 Price for the set of eight.

A popular motif from the 1880s, engraved versions of "Lily," actually "Lily of the Valley" with Aesthetic detailing, were produced by multiple manufacturers.

This matched set of eight, 5 15/16" long, 4.0 T. oz. the group, oyster, shrimp, or simply seafood, cocktail forks were made by Frank Whiting whose "W in a circle" and "Sterling" are imprinted on the reverses.

The handles are an "Antique" pattern with rounded ends and tipt backsides.

The fronts have satin matte finishes, which sets off the engraving to advantage.

There are three tines, the lower one of which (when held in the right hand) is hooked, with all of them joined to a cupped heel.

Never monogrammed, they are in very fine condition. The engraving remains crisp and the finishes are bright.
