Description

A fine set of 6 antique Georgian sterling silver dinner or table forks hallmarked in York. The forks were made by James Barber whilst he was in two separate partnerships. Firstly 3 are hallmarked for Barber and his partner William Whitwell in 1821 (Whitwell died in 1823) and 3 whilst Barber was in partnership with George Cattle and William North in 1829. All 6 forks are identical and have the same engraving to the handle which appears to be a vacant shield cartouche but may have been intended as a very stylised letter.

The forks are of fiddle pattern design and are in very good condition (NB any shadows shown in photographs are merely reflections). They are made with a thick gauge of silver, each spoon weighing approx. 2.5 ozs.

York Assay Office closed in 1856 so whilst not rare it is unusual to find a set of 6 dinner forks in such good condition.
