Shiebler "Corinthian" Sterling Silver Youth Fork
click for more pictures for item 4564f

A pattern that originated with John Polhamus, New York City, in the third quarter of the 19th century, it was continued in production by George Shiebler, as confirmed by his "winged S" emblem imprinted on this, along with "Sterling," "Pat.," and the name of the retailer, "James Mix," Albany.

The Greek Revival die struck pattern features an anthemion end with flanking rosettes and palmettes, joined to a tubular stem.

This example is 6 1/4" long, just over .8 T. oz., youth fork.

In excellent condition, it retains clear pattern detail and has a bright finish. The slender tines remain even, pointed, and without bends or burrs. The backside end of the handle is slightly rubbed where it rests, which could indicate a monogram removal but this is quite indefinite.

Note: various other youth forks available, please inquire.
