*19th Century Pair Of 800 Silver Ornate Serving Forks - 69 Grams For Sale
Lovely pair of 800 silver serving forks. Each has a beautiful flowing design adorning the handle. There is a mark denoting the silver content that's extremely small and difficult to read. There appears to be some sort of maker's mark alongside it, but I could not match it to a corresponding manufacturer. Not sure of an exact date of origin but I believe them to have been made around the late 19th Century. The forks show some wear and minor damage, but nothing a good silversmith couldn't easily repair. Each measures 8.25" x 0.75" and the pair weighs 69 us on Facebook @ Old Weird Stuff-First of all, thanks for looking at my

There are those on who will claim
that the weight of an object is less than advertised and demand a
rebate after the sale has ended. This is an ongoing trend and
these individuals seem to complain if silver prices go down between
the day they buy and the day they receive. When one melts silver one
can lose as much as 5% of the weight in the smelting process and I can not be held
responsible for weight lost after melting. I do not generally melt
anything that is well made as it makes little sense to me, so any
potential loss should be considered before purchasing my items.
-All my items are measured with a
standard tape measure and are rounded off to the quarter inch. I
attempt to be as accurate as possible, but odd surfaces can prove
difficult sometimes as I lack a pair of calipers.

errors do occur, albeit infrequently. I'm not perfect, contrary to

considerable expense and I cannot be held accountable if my items
cannot make it past such inspections.
