Description

A truly beautiful and unusual American sterling silver .925 sardine serving fork in the Old Orange Blossom pattern (circa 1905), made by the Alvin Manufacturing Company of Providence, Rhode Island. The company was founded by William H. Jamouneau in 1886, and was acquired by Gorham in 1928. They are known for fine quality silver and intricate work.
This lovely small fork has seven wide spread tines below pierced decoration to the heel, and a shaped stem with entwined orange blossoms standing proud on both sides. There is a blank cartouche suitable for personalisation if desired. All decoration is very sharp.
Size-approximately 4.25 inches long by 1.75 inches wide.
Weight-18 grams.
The maker's mark for Alvin is shown on the reverse, as well as sterling and patent.
For the sardine aficionado, the collector of small and interesting forks, or for those seeking to purchase an unusual gift;, this is a highly desirable, seldom found and sought after piece.
In very good condition, without personalisation. A beautiful and functional gift.
